    I just do a grep on the username in the proc directory - if there is no
    process for that user, I figure it's safe enough to move the mailbox. This
    approach has worked well so far. I experimented with accessing a mailbox
    while it was being moved and that seemed to be OK as well, i.e. it failed
    while the operation was in progress.
