Running dovecot on Solaris 8 sparc with SylpheedClaws as the MUA.
I tried moving to many messages from a folder to my maildir folder,
which is a local directory on the dovecot server.
Now, I cannot open the folder due to this message:
'Mar 20 10:26:15 sws601.mcsun.local imap(amoore): [ID 702911 mail.error]
Timeout while waiting for release of shared fcntl() lock for index file
How do I get the lock released? I changed some timeout settings in
dovecot.conf, but that did not help. Every time that I click this
particular folder in my MUA, the screen locks up.
