Thanks for your suggestion. Armed with that detail we tracked it down
to a broken index file for one of the user's subfolders, in which a
number of records had been overwritten with ASCII junk that looks like
/How/ that happened remains an open question, but a quick reconstruct
has hopefully prevented the busy-loop problem recurring in this case.
I might put your patch in the next round of packages we build...
