Thanks for the explanation.
That is indeed the case in my configuration. I have a GTK
notification app that keeps 1 connection open (that app is always
running on 2 and sometimes 3 different machines, but it's only
watching the Inbox). Then I often have 3-4 instances of mutt open,
but in each case, I only have one "inbox" configured.
