I do this regularly and never had issues, not even on a slow machine, on Linux and on OS X.

It would be interesting to know which mysql server people use who run into this issue. I replaced the default one shipped by Ubuntu with the MariaDB server, configured to use InnoDB through ~/.local/share/akonadi/mysql.conf. Extracts from that file:

# init file that disables logging:
# for running on ZFS:
innodb_doublewrite = 0
# use InnoDB for transactions and better crash recovery
