All I can say is that they worked here for Cyrus 2.1.15!  :)

The errors you describe sound like you didn't run reconstruct on the
mailbox after the migration, or perhaps the reconstruct doesn't work the
same way in 2.2.

I believe all of those scripts are also hosted in the Cyrus wiki, so if
you find bugs, please update them there so everyone benefits...
