I should have mentioned the DB version I was using.  It's db-3.1.17,
and has been quite stable for me until now.  I'm using skiplist for the
mboxlist and seen databases.

Is anyone running db_deadlock with cyrus?  How should it be invoked
from /etc/cyrus.conf?  Does the `checkpoint' event that already runs
every 30 minutes already do deadlock detection?
