I wonder if we all talk about the same problem, or there are more than
one. In my case, libmutt bails out in  mbox_sync_mailbox 

  if ((i = mbox_check_mailbox (ctx, NULL)) == M_NEW_MAIL ||  i ==
    /* new mail arrived, or mailbox reopened */
    need_sort = i;
    goto bail;

i.e. the mailbox is requested to be closed but new mail arrived in
meantime. I wonder what is the proper behavior. Basically, the proper algorithm
should lock the mailbox, load new mail, if any and then flush everything
to the disk, right?
