Looks like there is a "inc_lock_count" that is used to protect, but I'm
still checking all the details to make sure there is no way to bypass it.

Fact is that, if there is a way to go around the inc_lock_count check, then
you have that :
static gint inc_drop_message(Pop3Session *session, const gchar *file)
        /* CLAWS: claws uses a global .processing folder for the filtering. */
        dropfolder = folder_get_default_processing();

Yurk ! A global unique processing folder... So, yes, if a POP3 session goes
running at the same time another one is getting mails, and ended before,
then it'll probably go and process the emails, resulting in what I

Maybe a unique processing folder per account would be better ?
