Dovecot corrupted transaction log file is delaying email [Resolved]

We're running dovecot as an IMAP server and postfix to deliver mail. One of our users is complaining that email is gettin delayed (no we're not using grey listing or anything like that). /var/log/ is showing these log messages around when the user should be getting this email. The mail dirs (eg /mail) is mounted over NFS (if that helps)
