Problem- cyradm commandline tool cannot see users

I am implementing the Postfix-Cyrus-Web-Cyradm-howto 
Along with special instructions for FC3

 My problem is that I am trying to enable virtual users. As a result the email is being stored in a different fashion (as expected) however- cyradm can no longer see the mailboxes when logging in as admin cyrus defined in imapd.conf. Since I cannot see the mailboxes I cannot delete them, thereby risking to fill up significant hard drive space as time goes on. 

Here is an example mail directory for my user mike on my test server
[root at mail ~]# cd /var/spool/imap/domain/m/
[root at mail mike]# ls
cyrus.cache  cyrus.header  cyrus.index

and here's my imapd.conf:

postmaster: postmaster
configdirectory: /var/lib/imap
partition-default: /var/spool/imap
admins: cyrus
sievedir: /var/lib/imap/sieve
sendmail: /usr/sbin/sendmail
hashimapspool: true
sasl_pwcheck_method: auxprop
sasl_auxprop_plugin: sql
sasl_mech_list: PLAIN LOGIN
sasl_sql_engine: mysql
sasl_sql_user: mail
sasl_sql_passwd: secret
sasl_sql_hostnames: localhost
sasl_sql_database: mail
sasl_sql_select: SELECT password FROM accountuser WHERE username = '%u@%r'OR (us
ername = '%u' AND domain_name = '')
tls_cert_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/cyrus-imapd.pem
tls_key_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/cyrus-imapd.pem
tls_ca_file: /usr/share/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt
allowanonymouslogin: no
allowplaintext: yes
autocreatequota: 10000
reject8bit: no
quotawarn: 90
quotawarn: 90
timeout: 30
poptimeout: 10
dracinterval: 0
drachost: localhost
sieve_maxscriptsize: 32
sieve_maxscripts: 5
virtdomains: yes

and here's the result when logging in to cyradm as cyrus and attempting to display mailboxes:

[root at mail mike]# cyradm --user cyrus --server localhost --auth plain
IMAP Password:
              localhost.localdomain> lm
INBOX (\HasNoChildren)

and that is all that is displayed.

Is there a configuration error that I am missing that is disabling cyradm from viewing mailboxes?
