Several people have recently hit the problem where creating .notmuch
directory (e.g. to add a hook) before running notmuch new causes notmuch
new to fail. This is due to the way that notmuch currently detects a
database directory.  I'm not sure if this is easily fixable, but it
would be nice to at least give better diagnostics.
