One of my users is reporting his messages are not being marked as read 
when he reads them.  I see this in the logs:

Jun  7 15:17:05 bayes imap[24489]: db /var/lib/imap/user/x/xu.seen, 
inconsistent pre-checkpoint, bailing out
Jun  7 15:17:05 bayes imap[24489]: DBERROR: error committing seen txn; 
seen state lost: cyrusdb error

Is there an easy way to fix this db problem?  Thanks.
