Dovecot recompress

I was getting an error about the file size being too large.

May 4 17:42:57 ns1 dovecot: imap(jdavis)<21859><XXXXXXXXX/YYYYYYYYY>: Error: Corrupted record in index cache file /home/jdavis/Maildir/.Archivedir/dovecot.index.cache: UID 1: Broken physical size in mailbox Archivedir: read(zlib(/home/jdavis/Maildir/.Archivedir/cur/1111111111.M555555P333V000000000000FD05I0001A11F_2212.mailhost,S=9794:2,SZ,Z)) failed: Cached message size larger than expected (9794 > 3254, box=Archivedir, UID=1)

I might have clobbered some things while trying to fix it, so I restored a backup to maildir.tmp, and did the following to try to repair/rebuild.
