I needed to restart cyrus master and got this error minutes after doing it.

cyrus/mupdate[12614]: IOERROR: mapping /var/lib/imap/mailboxes.db file: 
Cannot allocate memory
cyrus/mupdate[12614]: failed to mmap /var/lib/imap/mailboxes.db file
cyrus/master[12580]: service mupdate pid 12614 in READY state: 
terminated abnormally

and after restarting the master instance again after this crash I got this

cyrus/ctl_cyrusdb[13314]: skiplist recovery /var/lib/imap/mailboxes.db: 
found partial txn, not replaying

Not very helpfull, but at least its a different message.
