ctl_cyrusdb -r tries to malloc 3GB, and fails.

Due to some form of database-corruption (again!) ctl_cyrusdb -r won't
work anymore. During the checkpoint (ctl_cyrusdb -c), the following
ctl_cyrusdb: unable to sync environment
ctl_cyrusdb: unable to archive environment
This is logged to syslog when I run 'ctl_cyrusdb -r':
DBERROR db4: malloc: Resoure temporarily unavailable: 3435973860
(does this really mean ctl_cyrusdb just tried to malloc 3GB?)
DBERROR db4: PANIC: Resource temporarily unavailable
DBERROR: critical database situation
However, ctl_cyrusdb -r returns without any error message.
According to the truss output, annotations.db is the last database opened.
This fortunately is not a production server, but how could one recover
this system? The db.backup1 and db.backup2 both contain only a
mailboxes.db and annotations.db, and diff shows those are the same as
the current version.
The system in question is Solaris 9 Sparc, cyrus-imapd-2.2.2-BETA,
cyrus-sasl-2.1.17. Berkely is db-4.1.25.
