Its a harmless log message, and if you're logging at LOG_DEBUG you should
expect to see a lot of harmless log messages.

In the next version of cyrus we've turned off logging for "socket is not
connected" totally.

You shouldn't ever need to reconstruct unless a mailbox is corrupted (And
that can be done live).  ctl_cyrusdb -r should *always* be run becfore
cyrus starts (it should be in the START section of master.conf).

I'm not sure what these conditions are, but disclaimers like this
generally can make it hard to take posts to public mailing in any serious
way (for example, if the disclaimer is that the contents of the message on
a public list is "confidential" what does that mean?)
