Problems with 2.2.10 on HPUX 11i

Hi Connie and Amos,

Since Cyrus 2.2.x allows run time configuration of db formats, I think 
the mboxlist format is OK, unless there is a typo I don't see in 
Connie's  imapd.conf entry: 
**mboxlist_db:            skiplist

**a quick look at the mailboxes.db file would tell you.  (or the log)

I do wonder about the two hours to complete the **ctl_cyrusdb -r  ** 
**Is there something corrupted here?   I can run this in under 1 second 
on my linux box.  ( probably with a lot fewer mailboxes, but still.)

    maillog.2:Dec 22 07:37:09 romulan ctl_cyrusdb[22041]: skiplist: 
recovered /var/lib/imap/mailboxes.db (15277 records, 1670048 bytes) in 1 

What does the syslog show?     Did you try exporting the mailboxes.db to 
text, deleting the original and importing it back in?

Just my thoughts,
