I'm using dovecot v1.0rc23 for about 500 users since february with no
particular problems. I'm using Maildir format and ldap authentication.
A recently added user can't check his mails any more. In the logs I get
May 23 14:35:58 mailsrv deliver(XXXX): [ID 702911 mail.error] Timeout
while waiting for shared lock for index file
The user connects with IMAP to retreive his mails. Currently I can login
to his account with pop3 and retreive the mails, but when it comes to
IMAP I get this error and no mail at all.
thanks in advance,
