the lock-errors from dovecot-deliver I ve solved my lock_method=dotlock (or flock).

But I cant change it in ssl-build-param

* The lock-issue is ONLY in jails!

Efcntl(write-lock) locking failed for file /tmp.tmp: Invalid argument
Ffile_try_lock(/tmp.tmp) failed: Invalid argument

So, what does that mean?
What is limiting the locking in jails, howto avoid?

Cheers, Oskar
