Are you loosing old messages out of the folder? Or is it that
just the new messages from fetchmail that aren't showing up?
I can't think of anyway for qmail to cause this if it is old
messages disapearing from a maildir. That would mean they
are being removed from the Maildir/cur directory. qmail-local
only touches Maildir/tmp and Maildir/new.
Whats in your .qmail file? I'm betting you have some sort of
program delivery such as procmail/maildrop/whatever. Even that
still doesn't quite add up because just like qmail-local they
wouldn't need to touch Maildir/cur to deliver new mail.
