So you're using mboxes? If nothing else than Dovecot is modifying mboxes
(adding mail is fine), you could use:

mbox_very_dirty_syncs = yes

Then the mbox is re-read only when absolutely necessary (something else
has modified the mbox and mails aren't where they're expected). I've
been using it for a few months (or whenever it was I added that
feature), works fine.
