I've taken a look.
The value of rc is -1, which according to the mdb_mid2l_insert code
means that it's a duplicate value, so the page is already in the txn's
dirty pages list.

Since it comes from an mdb_page_alloc call, it is a bit weird that the
newly allocated page is already on the list, but maybe it's a reused

The code did work on the compacted database, and it was doing exactly
