I have patched my lmtpd to use the local mailbox.db in all cases,
unified Murder, and standalone cyrus already did this.
I tested it with a few testmails on my test system,
but as i don't have a unified setup or a standalone test system
at the moment i didn't test these setups.

I would appreciate a review.
