It's a problem with the user.seen file.  Try deleting that file or restore a
backup of the file.  You should also see an error message like this in
your imap log file:

DBERROR: skiplist recovery /var/spool/cyrus/user/u/user.seen: ADD at 0828 exists

I actually have a swatch process running on servers to track down
these instances.
