Bug Description

I'm creating this bug, to be the master bug for shares and fsm metadata corruption issues.
In some cases we get corrupted metadata, this might be caused by a crash or a hard reset while the contents of the file aren't in the disk.

One way to recover from this situation is to remove the broken metadata file.
The files for accepted shares are located at: ~/.local/share/ubuntuone/syncdaemon/vm/shares
The files for offered shares are located at: ~/.local/share/ubuntuone/syncdaemon/vm/shared
The files for fsm are located at: ~/.local/share/ubuntuone/syncdaemon/fsm/

in the case of getting, e.g: KeyError: '8a86003d-1715-401c-8c6f-8bda6066a055' while trying to load share
metadata, a worlaround is to remove the file: ~/.local/share/ubuntuone/syncdaemon/vm/shares/8/a/8/8a86003d-1715-401c-8c6f-8bda6066a055 and restart syncdaemon.
