so Dovecot has to treat them as different mailboxes. For all non-INBOXes
it would delete the mailbox and resync it. But INBOX can't be deleted..
As for why the GUID changed, I don't know. Maybe you deleted some file
manually in the destination? Or maybe some bug.

No manual file deletion
- just ran dsync, then immediately ran it again.
