Answering my own question. If you open up the journal file in the bucket that's misnamed, you can extract the start and end times and use those to rename the directory to a scheme Splunk understands (db_endtime_starttime_sequence_guid). It didn't care what i used as a sequence number and the guid was grabbed from a correctly named bucket directory on one of my indexes. The process is ugly and slow but it works.
