Just did a bit more looking around and happened to check the messages
buffer, and it turns out there was a more complete error message there.
The problem was movemail.  mail-source-movemail-program wasn't set, and
the default value mail-source.el was looking in exec-directory, which
didn't have it.  Setting the variable manually to "/usr/bin/movemail"
solved the problem loading mail from my mail spool.  Doesn't explain why
toggling debug-on-quit made the message go away, of course.

Is this a packaging problem?  Should I file a bug with debian?  Or
should mail-source.el check the path for movemail?
