There are several solutions to this problem:

1) explicitly set "mbox_locks = fcntl"

   The default is "fcntl dotlock", by forcing mbox_locks to fcntl only
   then dotlocks won't be created in addition to fcntl locking.

2) If you want to use dotlocks then the above suggestion applies,
   set mail_extra_groups to mail in the in the config file.
   This is documented in /usr/share/doc/dovecot-*/REDHAT-FAQ.txt

   The use of dotlocks is probably only needed on older NFS mounts.
   The permission problem with dotlock creation only occurs if the
   mbox file in the system spool directory, which is only one of 
   multiple places to locate the mbox (albeit common).

3) Wait a short while, a new rpm is being prepared whose config file
   reverts to the previous behavior of forcing mbox_locks to fcntl
   which overrides the default.
