Are you loosing old messages out of the folder?  Or is it that
just the new messages from fetchmail that aren't showing up?

I can't think of anyway for qmail to cause this if it is old
messages disapearing from a maildir.  That would mean they
are being removed from the Maildir/cur directory.  qmail-local
only touches Maildir/tmp and Maildir/new.

Whats in your .qmail file?  I'm betting you have some sort of
program delivery such as procmail/maildrop/whatever.  Even that
still doesn't quite add up because just like qmail-local they
wouldn't need to touch Maildir/cur to deliver new mail.
