Yes, this works, even without dumping and loading.

I wonder if I really need to run db_checkpoint and db_recover before
removing the log file; for me it seems that's the same like just
removing /var/imap/db/__db.* and /var/imap/db/log.* - isn't it?

I guess I should definitely read the BDB docs again...

Thanks for your help!
