I suspect I'm causing breakage of metadata. I'm preparing to migrate to
mdbox from mbox, so I'm rsyncing mboxes to a new server and then running
dsync -R -u <user> backup mbox:/<path>
The INBOXes that were generating this error were those that I'd opened
using an IMAP client on the new server (testing mailboxes) between
rsync/dsync runs.
