If I have two invocations of emacs and in one I have modified but not
saved my RMAIL file, and then I try to read my mail in the other,
rmail-insert-inbox-text gives the error "RMAIL file ... is locked".  I
think it should call ask-user-about-lock instead, so I have the
opportunity to steal the lock and so forth.

This happens to me because I run emacs on the same server machine from
home and work, so if I go home without saving my mail file, I will get
this problem when I tried to read my mail from home.  But it seems to me
that it has only started happening recently, even though the code in
rmail-insert-inbox-text has been there a long time.  Previously I always
got the usual query: "... locked by kdo... (pid ....): (s, q, p, ?)?".
Perhaps it was formerly trying to modify file earlier in the process,
before the explicit check at the start of rmail-insert-inbox-text, and
so generating the usual query.

Sorry, I applied it now.  Unfortunately, it's too late for Emacs 25.1,
so the change is on the master branch, and will be in the next release
after that.
