Now that's the best hint I've got about the problem for a long time,
since it solves the problem.
How come that I haven't read about "managed mounts" before ? I do
remember that they have been mentioned earlier but I've never realised
what advantages they have.
Now I'm able to run a mutt-1.5.2 compiled OOTB (mutt-126.96.36.199i still has
problems) with Maildir. I've mounted ~/mail using
$ mount -f -s -b -o managed "d:/tmp/mail" "/home/of/mail"
and it works flawlessly with mutt/Maildir. Further I'm able to backup
the directory file by file using d:/tmp/mail to a network share.
Many thanks to all who have contributed to this solution.
