Hah, I bet he had Cyrus on a partition (or directories) operating in sync
mode :) (I assume he had a 2.x Cyrus install).

2. no "sync mounts" or "sync attributes" anywhere. Use a proper fs
3. A proper filesystem (ext2 and ext3 in default non-btree mode, aren't.
I doubt UFS is any better).
4. A properly configured Berkeley DB environment (although for some
reason, Cyrus seems to actually survive well without any config,
maybe the CMU crew override the defaults with something sane in
the bdb backend code. If you try the same with OpenLDAP, your server
will die an horrible death).
5. Use skiplist as the backend for the mailboxes and seen dbs.
