This is no longer supported in cyrus 2.2.x dB formats are specified only
in the configuration file.

You need to run cvt_cyrusdb_all after changing the configuration.
This is what I would to do convert the format if the cyrsus convert db
app isn't working..
as the cyrus user run
ctl_mboxlist -d > mboxlist.txt
then change the configuration for the mboxlist in the cyrus
delete the mailboxes.db (would be wise to have cyrus NOT running at
ctl_mboxlist -u < mboxlist.txt
That will dump and undump the database and change formats.
