Thanks for the bug report, as well as the fix you provided. I haven't
run it, but it looks totally reasonable.

That seems worth chasing down, but shouldn't prevent the acceptance of
your fix here which seems like only progress in the right direction.

Could you put your fix together in the form of a git-appliable patch?
Such as by applying it to the notmuch source, running `git commit` and
then `git format-patch HEAD~` or similar.

Thanks again,
