Thanks for the confirmation Jamie - I had a potter with my data and sure
enough, a search for 'tag:""' returned one hit.  I was able to use the
emacs interface to remove the empty string tag from the matching message
('-' then return with no parameters).

So it's probably fair to say that we'll want to handle at least the
empty string scenario as part of our standard tag addition logic since
it can lead to unexpected side effects in searching.

Do we have any other 'known bad' scenarios in tag addition that we want
to catch before I try my hand at a patch?
