No such file or directory? A ghost file? Perhaps the file system is

Does it get listed by shell expansion when you do ll -d imap/* ?

I'm running the server since many years (started with 1.6.2, then 3.1, now
5.0.1). But I never saw this problem before. Could it be caused by enabling
WAPBL, which I did after having installed 5.0.1?

IMHO, I don't see how WAPBL could do that. I would rather look for faulty hardware, with silent on-disk/write data corruption. $ atactl <device> smart status.

What is the recommended fix? Should I force an fsck?
