How does Evolution lock the spool files? 


Does it use lockfiles (if so, what is the convention?)? 

it can, depends on how you ./configure'd it.

by default, evolution uses dot-locking and fcntl. dot-locking is where
it creates /path/to/file.lock (I assume that's what you were asking?)

Does it use kernel locks (with flock and lockf
under FreeBSD, which is the OS I use)?

it can, depends on how you ./configured it. Well, actually I don't think
we support lockf, just flock. Never even heard of lockf.
