+1 to the updated version. Might be worth a note in it to say
"The parent could not be decoded to get its parent row. This at a
minimum will cause this row to have wrong parents, or even to apply a
delta to the wrong base and decode incorrectly. its therefore not
usable, and because we have encountered a situation where a new knit
index had this corrupt we can't asssume that no other rows referring to
the index of this record actually mean the subsequent uncorrupt one, so
we error.
