Wiki advice on running getmail on INBOX access - how does that work?

I'm currently running getmail in a cron job every 2 minutes, so I was
quite intrigued by this on the wiki:
Thing is - I couldn't see how it would work and, when I tried it, it
didn't work (at least not for me).
It details using incrontab to monitor /home/username/.maildir/cur in
order to trigger getmail.
However, "cur" won't change unless populated with mail...as an initial
result of actually running getmail? Seems like a chicken and egg situation.
I reckon I'm missing something fundamental :-), but what is it?
