I realized after I posted that this user is still on courier-imap (this
system is in the process of being migrated).
So I guess courier uses the /tmp folder when moving messages... I
remember this happened on another system I was using once - and that was
using courier too...
Guess I gotta get the rest of those users migrated asap...
