Do you mean db4 (4.1.25)?  If so, yes.  I am testing the patch as we
speak, but I believe it will solve the lockers issue and recovery problems
after cyrus restart.  This should also fix issues with berkeley
mailboxes.db some folks have reported.  Although, people should use
skiplist for mailboxes.db.  The patches will be in the cvs soon.

The previous version of sleepycat (db 4.0.14) did not have this problem
because it did not lock open db handles.
