The following is missing from the replication code in 2.3.X:
If debris is left in /var/spool/imap/sync. because sync_server died
without a clean shutdown, then a future sync_server run can trample over
messages in the replica mailstore. This is actually a repeat of a bug that
Bron found a year or so back. We switched from using sync_message_open()
to sync_getsimple() in the intervening time.
