Cyrus Startup-Check

I run cyrus with fetchmail. Every night, a cron script stopps cyrus and
fetchmail, tars the mail folders and restarts cyrus and fetchmail. My
problem is, that fetchmail is too fast and tries to deliver mail via lmtp,
before cyrus is ready - so the mail is moved to the local root mail account
and not into the cyrus mail spool.

Has anybody any Idea how to check if cyrus is ready to receive mail before
restarting fetchmail from within a cron script?

Second: the syslog is flooded with "imapd[xx]: startttls: ... login: ...
"-messages. How can this be stopped?
