Skiplist files recover themselves the first time they are opened after a
ctl_cyrusdb -r is run.

Since you want to run this every time you start cyrus (to ensure the
database state is sane before using it), these messages are normal and
don't indicate a problem.

These files hold the state of the \Seen flag for all the messages for that
particular user.
