Thanks, but I still cannot reproduce.

Does "M-x rmail" on your system fetch mail from some inbox?  On my
system, it doesn't, so I replaced "M-x rmail" in your recipe with
"C-u M-x rmail SOME-MBOX-FILE RET" in both sessions, and left the rest
of the recipe unaltered.  With that, I don't see the message you cite.

I will try on another system, maybe this is something local.
