"When in doubt, always mount a scratch monkey"

I have a spare partition for this kind of tests, and I am happy to
report that a quick test this morning shows:

* the innd data corruption that started this whole thread appears
to be solved;

* I could not trigger any data corruption by a simple
"fire up mutt and delete some mails in the inbox" test.

Definitely needs additional testing, but so far it looks good.
