Inc.get_inc_ext infinite loop

rdiff-backup 0.5.4 is occasionally getting into an infinite loop in which
it repeatedly displays error messages like this:

  Warning, found unexpected inc file /backup/rdiff-backup-data/increments/etc/ntp/drift.2002-03-08T23:43:05-04:00.diff

It also happens with .dir files.  When I delete the unexpected file and
resume rdiff-backup, it runs normally.
