If you just disable a user's access, you also need to kill any existing
processes the user might have.

Really? I'm pretty sure I've successfully created tars where files have
changed during it and without any special options. And if you're using
maildir there shouldn't be any mailbox corruption since only metadata
You could anyway lock mailboxes one at a time. With maildir creating
dovecot-uidlist.lock file (but that also means creating the .lock safely
so that if it exists, wait until it's gone).
