Clients mount off of the server, but dovecot (IMAP) connections are made
directly.  Home directories are not mounted, so I do not think NFS can be
affecting  dovecot.  I think the problem is due to 2 users using the 
same account
making simultaneous access.  It could be that the users need to be on 
with differing architectures (i386 and x86_64 in our case).

Anything more I can tell you?
