No, and I'd be surprised if he ever does anything with Qmail again.
I'd heard he was doing some total rewrite for qmail-2.0. That might just be vicious 'net rumor though....
What I was picturing there was the process of an MUA using PID as naming moving mail from new -> cur (in conjunction w/ MDA using dev#inode#) getting horked by the MUA exiting and restarting with its PID recycled. Locking
But, unless your “dev#inode#” looks like a single integer, there's no chance of a collision.
Anyway, Postfix should be using the documented convention for inserting the device/inode pair into the filename. Other software may use milliseconds, process IDs, or several other entities (including random numbers); but as long as everyone follows the same convention -- even if they use different entities -- there's no chance of anyone stepping on anyone else's toes.
