No, I don't think upgrading will help with the problem.  I get it too 
when I use IMAP, so I more often use mbsync and work locally.

No yelling, but perhaps some enticing.  :-) Starting with mutt 1.11.0, 
there is a new config variable, $imap_qresyc, which I've tested against 
Fastmail.  It's still a "beta" thing, and may have some glitches, but 
you may want to give it a try if you get the opportunity to upgrade.
