[Dovecot] Can't find next message offset

I am getting a lot of warnings since upgrading to 1.1rc10 (from rc4):

   mbox /home2/seta/Mail/Sent: Can't find next message offset for uid=12

Almost always, it is the Sent or Trash folders that are giving these.  Users
aren't experiencing any problems, but the errors continue to come.

Is this something I should be concerned about?

Here is output of "dovecot -n":
