mailboxes.db vs ctl_mboxlist -d

Is there a reason why "ctl_mboxlist -d" generates output of the form?:
The actual values in mailboxes.db are stored as:
Value: 0 default dpc99\tlrswipcda\t
Consequently "cyr_dbtool /var/imap/mailboxes.db set < file" expects input
lines of the form:
user.dpc99\t0 default dpc99\tlrswipcda\t
I just spent a rather puzzled half hour playing with cyr_dbtool, wondering
why utilities were started to segfault and abort() in amusing ways.
Entirely my own fault, but it does demonstrate the danger of using tabs
and spaces inconsistently. I think that cyr_dbtool is correct and
ctl_mboxlist is in the wrong here.
