Can you post the logic that your script was using?  That might help.

Doesn't look like a skiplist issue directly to me.  Possibly it's a
"was in a transaction and rolled back" issue, but that's separate,
and it doesn't explain the mails still being on disk!

Also - do you have split meta?  I.e. are the mail files in a different
location than the cyrus.* files?
