notmuch ignoring alot of emails

When I run notmuch I get a bunch (hundreds) of emails that are ignored 

Note: Ignoring non-mail file: ...

The files are valid maildir files but have a paragraph somewhere in the 
body where someone has written "From ".

Is there a fix to force the recognition of maildir files in this case? I 
thought this was a solved problem with gmime since 2.6.7.

Sorry for the pun in the subject but I am using alot and I only see the 
messages notmuch sees, neomutt has no issues seeing these messages but I 
want a tighter integration with notmuch.

I'm on a mac and compiled notmuch-0.28.3; installed gmime 3.2.3 with 
brew, and verified notmuch was linking against it:

Any ideas for a fix?
