This might or might not be considered a bug, or at least it might just
be wishlist severity, but in my case, I have


and notmuch contained:

  /home/rlb/notmuch/Maildir -> /home/Maildir

I arranged things like that so I could easily drop other mail-ish trees
into notmuch/ if I liked, and also so that I wouldn't have to worry
about the fact that maildir++ is going to name the directory for the
notmuch list's folder ".notmuch".  However, I outsmarted myself because
notmuch ignored both "[path]/.notmuch", and "[path]/Maildir/.notmuch".

Though this isn't a critical problem for me.  For now, I just rewrote my
procmail rules and renamed the directory to .notmuchmail.

Hope this helps
