And if it's expected, then why was it saying "Permission denied" when our
code took it at its word and tried to set flags on a message!

Our solution is to be conservative in what we believe, and storing
'read-only' in our internal "connection state" data if we asked
for an examine rather than a select - regardless of the server's
response.  This feels like a good idea that will keep working just
fine when the bug is fixed, and protect us against any future
