Have you tried to explicitly create the the mailbox after the fact?
This can be done nondestructively. I remember needing to do this for
some mailboxes when I used imapsync to migrate from uw-imap. It's
inconvenient, but if you're only talking about a fraction of 98 users,
it might be feasible.
If you've already migrated your data, you might also consider adding
some flags to reconstruct:
My most recent migration was between two similar environments using the
same version of Cyrus IMAPd (2.3.11). In that case, I simply copied all
data to the new server, identified and removed the following Berkely DB
Then I started Cyrus, which rebuilt the missing databases. It worked
like a charm, with no need for reconstruct or imapsync. However, I don't
know if this is an option for the 2.2.x series.
