Icedove won't allow that - I have just tried it. Interestingly, I was
able to read your message with no problems, but Icedove crashed when I
attempted to read a recent message in another folder. I expect you may
be right about corruption.

As to getting a log, this is a Debian installation, and everything goes
to syslog. I have made the necessary change in dovecot.conf,
and will see what I can generate. No luck so far with valgrind: I must
be setting it up wrong.
