[Dovecot] Bug: Fixed a duplicate

I restored a dovecot mailserver today, and when I started the server
again, the logs filled up with "Fixed a duplicate" warnings.
This in itself it not a problem, the problem is that it appears the fix
is not done correct. Consider this:
Warning: Fixed a duplicate:
The problem appears to be the timestamp of this new file isn't updated
Now I got hundreds of mailboxes filled with mails named 1305907573.*
with random (in the past) timestamps, leading to mangled miss-sorted
inboxes for customers.

Dovecot is v. 2.0.11
I guess I should have deleted all dovecot.* files after the restore,
before I started dovecot?
