      Description

      The WiredTiger metadata file can be logically inconsistent (for example, there can be a table entry where there's a missing underlying file entry).

      Deal with this in two ways:

      (1) if the metadata is inconsistent when reading with a metadata:create cursor, treat it as missing; and
      (2) use a single transaction for create and drop operations so the metadata is not left inconsistent by a crash.
