MailMate beachballing while drafting

Reported by Ashley Harvey | May 29th, 2020 @ 04:00 AM

Note: I have gpg signing enabled, perhaps it's related.
I have 4x IMAP accounts, one offline (just an archive), with close to 200,000 emails.

I have noticed this issue more recently - probably in the last 6-12 months or so.
While I'm drafting an email, occasionally everything hangs and I get a beachball for a few seconds. Attempting to make any changes while this goes on often leads to typos or what I'm typing ending up in the draft in the wrong order, so then I have to correct again - and often only to seemingly cause another beachball.

I had enough, so I ran fs_usage while this happened. Lo-and-behold, I see roughly 2,500 fcntl calls all at the same time.
I will attach the fs_usage log.
