It looks like someone manually deleted one part of a multipart
attachment (the parent but not the child).

You appear to be using the validator from 4.0.4, not 4.0.8 which is
the latest.

Assuming you have a backup, run rt-validator with --check --resolve
and tell it to delete those leftover attachments for you and it'll
take care of them.
