All right, I tried dnotify manually, and despite the times on
directories not changing, I get notification (command line) when new
So I recompiled dovecot to use dnotify (--with-notify=dnotify), but it's
still not working as it should. I have three mails in new, my command
line dnotify saw all of them, but dovecot has not notified my client of
them, or moved them out of new...
