Lock Count Exceeded

Hi there,

I'm a bit of a beginner with CygWin to be honest, I use it (at the moment) almost exclusively to get the benefit of the better compile of Mutt than the Win32 version.

I have been using Mutt for a while and have a well established .muttrc and so on, so since that worked fine with my HOME set to h:/, I decided to use Mutt on Cygwin with HOME set to /cygdrive/h/ to get identical functionality.

However, when I load Mutt, I get an error message saying "Lock Count Exceeded, remove lock for /cygdrive/h/mail/postponed" and whenever I try to save messages to an alternate folder, I get the same sort of message, e.g. "Lock Count Exceeded, remove for /cygdrive/h/Mail/lists/cygwin"

Can anyone offer any advice here?

Many thanks in advance,
