Looking at the code, I think this could happen when Dovecot tries to
create the log file, then it tries to open it but notices that again
it's corrupted.

So there's something weird which causes newly created files to be
broken. Does it work if you append :INDEX=MEMORY to mail_location? What
about if you add :INDEX=/tmp/dovecot-%u or something so that the indexes
aren't in AFS?
