What means RAID5 reconstruction? A Rebuild of a failed Disk or did you 
reinitialize/reformat the Raid 5? Is the rebuild running at the moment?

Did you check the Filesystem?

Does this Directory '/var/imap/db' exist?

At the first sight, this looks for me like a Berkeley-DB Version mismatch. 
Cyrus is build with Version x but you have installed/it is running with 
version y. Check this.

Stop Cyrus and Start it again. Show the Logs from the Start-Moment.
