Is this still an issue in the latest 1.6.1 branch?

Please see the pollmailboxes option in voicemail.conf, new in 1.6.0.  The method of checking mailboxes for messages has changed, which will save a great deal of CPU time for many Asterisk installations.  However, those installations which delete messages from outside of Asterisk still need that old method, which is what this option was created to allow.
