 For now, you can do 
 
   notmuch dump somefile
   mv Mail/.notmuch /tmp
   notmuch new
   notmuch restore somefile
 
 Which will re-index all your mail, and restore your tags, as far as the
 messages are still called the same. Deleted messages will disappear from
 the library, and moved messages remain in the inbox.
 
 Still a pain in the ass, but at least it gets rid of all those errors.

With all due respect... Seriously? That doesn't even qualify as a crazy
hack... this process takes something like 15 minutes for me.

Carl, any idea how when an actual solution to this problem will arrive?

Hard to predict, since it depends on me finding some spare time to work
on this. It's obviously a high-priority issue for notmuch at this point.

In the meantime, Mikhail did contribute a patch that should work, (with
some performance impact on notmuch new). You might give it try. You
can find it in our (lame) web-based archives (with no link to get the
raw message), here:

http://notmuchmail.org/pipermail/notmuch/2009/000766.html

Or if you have all of the notmuch mail archives then you can find it
much more easily by just doing a notmuch-search (just hit 's' from any
notmuch buffer in emacs) for:

id:1259267025-28733-1-git-send-email-dotted...@dottedmag.net

Any latecomers to the list can grab the whole archives from here:

http://notmuchmail.org/pipermail/notmuch/2009.txt.gz

And import by running that through mb2md (targeting a new directory
within the mail store). Eventually I'd like to provide a direct notmuch
command for importing an mbox like this.

I have the similar problem here, and Carl said in IRC There's basically
one feature missing before notmuch will play with another maildir-based
mail reader..

There is also a thread [PATCH] Handle message renames in mail spool in
the archive which might help:

http://notmuchmail.org/pipermail/notmuch/2009/000562.html

 been marked as read in evolution between processing in notmuch and
 trying to access them from the user interface.
 
 This makes notmuch /really/ hard to test for me at this point.
 
 Is there a workaround?
