Similar apparent timing issue on epel-8-aarch64:

 FAIL   Adding message with long ID
	--- T290-long-id.2.expected	2022-02-11 13:55:17.028415326 +0000

	@@ -1 +1 @@
	-Added 1 new message to the database.
	+No new mail.
 FAIL   Referencing long ID after adding
	--- T290-long-id.3.expected	2022-02-11 13:55:17.078415753 +0000
	+++ T290-long-id.3.output	2022-02-11 13:55:17.078415753 +0000
	@@ -1 +1 @@
	-Added 1 new message to the database.
	+Added 2 new messages to the database.

Note how that message from the 1st subtest shows up only in the second.
