The source of the vault contains a directory or file named "summary".

The contents of the last valid image are mounted to "current" residing
in the vault's root-directory.

dirvish-expire now runs through all images and the "current" directory
where it finds the "summary" file and exits with an error because it is
not what dirvish-expire expects.

Why does dirvish-expire recursively scan all image directories?
It should be sufficient to list the first level of all images to get to
the summary file and the tree directory.
Or is there a setup where image directories are nested?
