i know this is hardly a help, but the manual says:

  Maildir.  The newest of the mailbox formats, used by the Qmail MTA (a
  replacement for sendmail).  Similar to MH, except that it adds three
  subdirectories of the mailbox: tmp, new and cur.  Filenames for the
  messages are chosen in such a way they are unique, even when two
  programs are writing the mailbox over NFS, which means that no file
  locking is needed.

just a thought
