If you havent got over it by now ( that would be too bad if that was a real live server ) 
do what I would normally do in such a situation.
stop cyrus 
kill all lmtp processes ( You may still see them in `ps `)
now remove deliver.db file .. might be in /var/imap/
start cyrus again
keep fingers crossed

Hope that helps
