Subject: [PATCH] extindex: avoid triggering a buggy unref

We can't attempt to unref messages beyond the highwater mark of
an inbox.  This bugfix was found by commit c485036d0b1ce7ed
(extindex: guard against buggy unrefs, 2021-10-14), which
actually did its intended job and guarded against a buggy unref.

The window for the bug is when one process is doing -index
against an inbox, -extdindex --reindex is working on the same
inbox.
