Dovecot Master/Master Replication Problem

I've set up 2 servers with dovecot 2.2.9 using maildir using structure: 
Server A:
Server B:

Mails are delivered to dovecot only on server A by exim4/dovecot deliver

replication to Server B works immediatelly:
mark mail as read on server A, mail is marked as read on server B.

BUT: when i mark a mail as read on Server B, noting happens.
On Server A I get messages like this in dovecot-error.log:

2014-10-22 22:35:05 dsync-server(localpart at Error: 
stat(/var/maildir/ failed: 
Not a directory
2014-10-22 22:35:05 dsync-server(localpart at Error: Failed to 
access mailbox dovecot-sync.lock: Internal error occurred. Refer to 
server log for more information. [2014-10-22 22:35:05]

I googled a bit, this could habben if there is a file 
".dovecot-sync.lock" in the maildir, but I've double checked that, there 
is no such file...
Why does it work in one direction, but not in the other?

Please help

best regards
