[Dovecot] mbox_sync_read_and_move failure

I recently switched to using dovecot for my IMAP server.  I'm running
dovecot 1.0rc10 on redhat linux 7.3.  The filesystem is ext2, not
NFS.  I'm using mbox for mail storage.  It worked okay for a day or
two, but now when I try to check my mail I get an error from
evolution, my imap client, saying that the server unexpectedly
disconnected.  In the server logs I see:

Nov  2 13:10:49 tenkan dovecot: imap-login: Login: user=<tim>,
method=PLAIN, rip=, lip=, TLS
Nov  2 13:10:58 tenkan dovecot: IMAP(tim): file mbox-sync-rewrite.c:
line 405 (mbox_sync_read_and_move): assertion failed: (need_space ==
Nov  2 13:10:58 tenkan dovecot: child 30315 (imap) killed with signal

I see that this came up on this list a little while ago, but it
doesn't sound like it got resolved.  For the moment, I'm unable to
read my mail via IMAP.   :/

Any ideas?
