Problem using reconstruct

Not sure if both servers have the same cyrus version, but we have seen issues
where reconstruct did not deal properly with the old format of the cyrus files
in the mailboxes when we ran it after converting from 2.0.16 to 2.2.3.     ( I
know others have hit this as well.)   I have not researched the code, but I
would guess that the code that updates the cyrus files to the new format is not
included in reconstruct.    The first time you access the mailboxes the cyrus
files get upgraded and then you can run reconstruct safely.  (This sounds like
the behavior you are experiencing.)  If you are not changing versions, I have
no idea.

Hope this helps,
John Wade
