Excerpts from Maciej (Matchek) Bliziński's message of Mon Jan 16 04:33:40 -0500 2012:

This is likely an artifact from the old processes.  If I recall
correctly, this package submission triggered a discussion about file
collisions (/opt/csw/bin/imapd) and the registration of the update was
never completed.

Registrations that failed with a file collision leave things in a half
baked-state.  In fact, I think the new code likely does this too.  I
should change the ordering such that files are registered for a new
package before we touch the other data.  That would let us fail early
on a package leaving only that table inconsistent.
