That's the theory anyway. :)

Whenever dovecot.index file would normally get recreated, the old one is
first link()ed to dovecot.index.backup. So that depends on various
things. You could compare timestamp differences between dovecot.index
and dovecot.index.log in your current system. Perhaps I should add some
extra code that guarantees that .backup gets created at least once .. a
day? week? .. (assuming there have been changes)
