Could it be that because the sent messages get queued to msmtpq, it is
picked up as an 'error'?
If it might help, I can try switching to using msmtp instead of msmtpq
and see whether the fcc notmuch insert works and the message buffer is

If that is the case, then perhaps both (1) the insert not happening and
(2) the message buffer not being killed after the message being sent,
are probably tied to the same underlying issue.
