Interesting -- can you detail this parts of your configuration?

I am not using dovecot locally so far, just nnmaildir from Gnus.

But I've encountered some annoying race conditions, while sync'ing
through mbsync *and* reading/replying from Gnus, so I'm interested
in knowing how to avoid them -- ideally letting mbsync to run in
the background.

Thanks!
