Here the mailboxes break on differnent times. I wrote a small cronjob that 
check all mailboxes for *.NEW files and run this every 15 mins. Here's a short 
list of the last half day when broken mailboxes were found:

2011-08-03 23:00:03: 3 folders
Mailbox user.aaaa
Mailbox user.bbbb.Dokumenten&AOQ-nderungsantr&AOQ-ge
Mailbox user.cccc

2011-08-03 22:45:02: 2 folders
Mailbox user.dddd
Mailbox user.eeee

2011-08-03 22:30:03: 2 folders
Mailbox user.ffff.Sent
Mailbox user.gggg
Mailbox user.hhhh

2011-08-03 18:00:01: 2 folders
Mailbox user.eeee
Mailbox user.eeee.Automatisierung

2011-08-03 15:30:02: 1 folder
Mailbox user.hhhh

I replaced the usernames with letters. Same letters are same usernames.

My small script removes all *.NEW files and the corresponding files and runs a 
reconstruct on the mailbox. This is a workaround to fix the mailboxes 
automatically. As you can see, some mailboxes break after a few hours again.
