Yikes! That's definitely bad news. Let's coordinate off-list to see if I
can replicate that problem with the message you've got.

Indeed not. The only previous cases we've hit where notmuch was reliably
crashing emacs was a buffer-overflow in emacs triggered by some giant
email messages (spam usually).

In that case, the emacs authors were really quick about finding and
fixing the bug. Will hope for something similar here once we can
replicate the problem.
