Yeah, I probably managed to make it use ~/.notmuch-config somehow. > Still that would really only be tags from your pytest tests, and you'd > probably recognize those? The were a bunch of weird characters that looked like unicode test-cases, the pytest tests don't try to test notmuch only the bindings so doesn't really make up weird strings IIRC. I recovered with something like "notmuch dump | cleanup_tags.py | notmuch restore", oh well. I still have a bunch of non-existing messages with weird unicode message IDs in them, but no associated filename just an empty string. AFAIK notmuch_database_remove_message() needs a filename though, I've tried removing the empty file which does not fail but doesn't clear those database entries. The messages are not ghosts either. Any idea how I might be able to clear those bad messages from the database?
