If the folders are empty (no cyrus.* files) but still in the mailbox
list, it sounds like your copy did not move everything over properly or
else the mailbox db doesn't correspond to the spool files (empty
directories can be left around when deleting a folder if the folder is
selected when it is deleted). Aside from these particular accounts, I
would be concerned that other things were not copied correctly.

With cyrus shut down, do ctl_mboxlist -d >file, edit the file, the
ctl_mboxlist -u <file.
