Thanks for the fix, @nabijaczleweli.
Your bug caused quite a bit of discussion on IRC:

  • how we should fix it
  • how we could make it work (it'd be a pain)
  • why neomutt locked up, but upstream mutt didn't

I've moved your fix out to mx_path_probe().
That puts it in the code path for all the mailboxes.
I've also added a gettext macro around the message for translation: _(...)
