How to clean up the mailboxes database?

Something went wrong in deleting a mailbox and re-creating it on a
different partition. The result is that the mailboxes database
contains mailbox entries for sub-folders of that mailbox on two
different partitions, even though the corresponding directories
don't exist. Can I clean up this mess by dumping the database with
`ctl_mboxlist -d', deleting the erroneous lines and reloading it
with `ctl_mboxlist -u'? The IMAP server would have to be down, of
course. How safe is this? There are about 16000 mailboxes. We
are running cyrus-imapd-2.1.14. The database is in skiplist format.
