Thanks Nicolas,

I understand better what is going on. BTW I think this still open
issue is about the same issue:

So offlineimap is not the problem but the user which quit
bruttaly mutt without using "q".

Another cause could be the use of several instance of mutt in the same
time. I very often write an email while reading a related other email.
Like mutt displays a empty screen while I write in emacs, I need
another mutt.

Here is the solution I set up for sync-to-disk *before* and after
archive and delete:

macro index,pager a <save-message>":set confirmappend=no delete=yes\n<save-message>=Petur/Archives\n<sync-mailbox>:set confirmappend=yes delete=yes\n"

bind index,pager d noop
macro index,pager d <sync-mailbox>":set confirmappend=no
confirmappend=no delete=yes\n" "copy message to the trash"
