What does "detach tmux" mean exactly?

And how much can I trust Gnus manipulating my Maildir?
Isn't it a server more reliable in general?

I'm also trying hard to finally have this kind of separation working,
and until now I was able to configure bitlbee with erc very nicely.

I think I will have different instances *but* with the same
configuration.
I could just use a different desktop file for the other instane and
everything would work great.

Now I have for example
--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
  (defun bitlbee ()
    "connect to bitlbee"
    (interactive)
    (select-frame (make-frame))
    (erc :server "localhost" :port "6667" :nick "andrea"))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
