Database/Collection drop during initial sync can cause collmod to fail initial sync

      If during the cloning of collections the database is dropped then it is possible that none of the collections are copied – same can happen with a collection as well. If we then apply an operation from the oplog which tries to change that collection, like collMod, it is possible for it fail and error (causing a shutdown of the server).

      We should write a test to reproduce this before we attempt a fix, to ensure it is a real problem.

      One possible solution might be that we check if the collection still exists remotely and if not, ignore the error – since the database will be dropped later in the oplog.
