Please note that we're talking about deletions and renames *between* the scandir(3) call and going through the results it returns, during a single invocation of 'notmuch new'. On the next run, scandir(3) won't return the entry, and we'll think it's gone. (Of course, if you keep deleting/renaming files and running 'notmuch new' simultaneously all the time, you'll hit this on some other files on the consequent runs, but then you asked for it...)
