The base filename continues up to the ':' character in the filename, so
if there different characters between the '.' and ':' then they're still
treated as different files. Try something like:

ls|sed 's/:2,.*//'|sort|uniq -D

If you have 10 files with the same basename, Dovecot shows only one of
them and the rest are ignored (and if it had write permissions, they
might get overwritten as well).
