Have you considered implementing fcntl() instead of using lock files?

Actually I was more thinking of being able to use fcntl() if it works, or
otherwise use lock file (I was unclear).

Of course, I'm still in favor of wrapping MHonArc with procmail (or a
script that at least calls lockfile) and specifying -nolock on the

Yes, using procmail is an appealing sollution. That's probably easier than
trying to finding out how to set parameters correct to fcntl().
