A race condition in the '*' command was noted when it was first
proposed. It looks to me like it still exists - has anything been done
about it?

Right now what I am doing is killing fetchmail, then using the '*'
command, then starting fetchmail again in daemon mode, which is a little
inconvenient. You see, in my setup fetchmail calls procmail to deliver
mails, and procmail calls "notmuch new" after delivering every mail.
