Oh - I have a workaround for you.

cyr_dbtool /var/imap/mailboxes.db skiplist show > /tmp/mailboxes.txt

copy a similar mailbox entry from the same user and just change the
folder name - keep the rest of the line the same - and put it into

cyr_dbtool /var/imap/mailboxes.db skiplist set < /tmp/newmailboxes.txt

That will fix the mailbox entry without needing a full reconstruct
or losing flag data!

Not ideal - but it will do until we can get you a real fix!
