Yes, you can ignore it, although it means that Dovecot couldn't flush
file handle cache. So if there are multiple servers accessing the same
mbox at the same time you might have locking timeouts due to the OS
caching the existence of the dotlock.
I guess /home/xyz is actually the mountpoint? That's the reason it gives
the EBUSY. Mails are typically stored in a directory that's not a
mountpoint and this error doesn't happen then.
