Is it safe to move files in and out of the mailman's qfile/in, qfile/out
directory while the qrunners are running?

We are having an empty 'in' queue, but huge out queue. There might be bad
messages stuck somewhere. I saw some posts in past that you can move files
to another place, move them back in batches and try to identify which is

Can you do that (drop in files, or move the files out), while the service
is running, without crashing service or lost data?
