The store has a "store info" file for each account, which gives
information on last object IDs used, size of files, etc. It doesn't
have to be absolutely up to date for things to work correctly, so is
written lazily after every few transactions for performance reasons.
When an error occurs everything is cleaned up nicely, but the store
info it isn't written back (as it might cause more errors) and so is
then out of date. This doesn't matter, as the code is tolerant.
However, housekeeping needs accurate sizes. It scans everything anyway,
so calculates the correct values and adjusts the store info file if
they are wrong -- this is what you're seeing.
