fetchmail: lock creation failed

I am in the process of replacing a failing hard drive. I copied my home directory from the old drive to the new drive with

   cd /oldhome/tom
cp -Rp .* /home/tom ( Found by trial and error that .* works)

Almost everything works - e.g. mozilla previously undeleted mail - but fetchmail which aborts with the "lock creation failed" message.

How can I fix this?
