I've been having difficulties getting Cyrus to run on my server and hope 
someone might be able to help me out. The current problem I have gives me 
the following output in my imapd.log when I attempt to restart the server:

Apr  1 07:37:31 phoenix master[9193]: about to exec /usr/libexec/cyrus/imapd
Apr  1 07:37:31 phoenix imap[9193]: executed
Apr  1 07:37:31 phoenix imapd[9193]: skiplist: invalid magic header: 
Apr  1 07:37:31 phoenix imapd[9193]: DBERROR: opening 
/var/lib/imap/mailboxes.db: cyrusdb error
Apr  1 07:37:31 phoenix imapd[9193]: Fatal error: can't read mailboxes file
Apr  1 07:37:31 phoenix master[9180]: process 9193 exited, status 75

This install is from the rpm found at created 
by Simon Matter(?) - cyrus-imapd-2.1.12-9.i386.rpm. This is being used on a 
Linux RedHat 8 system using the 2.4.18-14 kernel. mailboxes.db is found at 
/var/lib/imap/ and is chowned to cyrus.cyrus.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
