As a followup, I removed the index files, I wiped the Trash folder and
INBOX completely empty.  Then, as soon as a new message gets put in
the INBOX file, then deleted and moved to Trash, a "can't find next
message offset" warnings gets logged about the Trash folder.

In other words, it's occuring *every* single time a message is ever
copied/moved to a folder, and the error occurs about the destination
folder in the copy.

This is even with brand-new empty folders and no index files in existance.

This seems like it would have to be a bug of some sort.
