I was (perhaps one of) the people who reported "reappearing emails" with
2.2.10 in the context of Maildir with replication under CentOS 7. I had
spent a great deal of time making it reproducible, difficult because
there was a timing element. In that context, 2.2.23 absolutely fixed
the problem which was absolutely related to a timing issue with
replication. If I remember right, this person was reporting a
similar-sounding problem, but it did not involve replication and was not
under CentOS 7. Creating a script that reproduces the problem is an
important first step. Good luck.
