Let's look at what qmail-pop3d does  when a client ``scans'' the list of
messages:

$ find new -type f| wc -l
       1
$ find cur -type f| wc -l
       1

So, I have one  message in Maildir/new and one in  Maildir/cur, and if I
login to my qmail-pop3d, run LIST,  nothing happens to the file on disk,
there remains one in Maildir/cur and one in Maildir/new.

+OK 
LIST
+OK 
1 559
2 563
.

However, as soon as I send QUIT  to my qmail-pop3d daemon, it moves that
message from Maildir/new to Maildir/cur:

$ find cur -type f| wc -l
       2
$ find new -type f| wc -l
       0

Does that mean that MH scan should do the same?
