I tested this on my own mailbox. I have about 50 IMAP folders, about
25Gb of mails, and I do not know how many thousands of emails. 

I think
the dsync shall not keep the file pointers opened, but process one ofter
another somehow, so there shall be no limit in mailboxes size.

How much messages do you have?.. I thought mdbox was supposed to keep
only a few files open. Maybe there's a bug in here..
