reconstruct didn't get flags

The other day, my Cyrus server had a power outage and Cyrus got sad –
got some dberror on start of it.
This is a Mac OS X Server box, with the standard Cyrus configuration.
I first tried a reconstruct – the domain is small enough, takes only
a few minutes. Still error on start. To me it wasn't clear which
database was actually corrupted. So I restored the configuration
directory (/private/var/imap) from nightly backups. That did the trick.
So the system got up and started receiving mail again.
At the end of this though, I noticed that I lost mail flags (read and
answered in particular). I'm at a loss to describe why, since
reconstruct was supposed to preserve them. That's not so nice… is
there a good way of getting them back? Are they saved in the
cyrus.index files in the mailbox directories?
Could I restore cyrus.index files from backups and run reconstruct? I
guess this would destroy flags of anything that has happened since
the outage though… which is still a lot better.
Is there even a way to combine flags from the current cyrus.index
files and the ones that I would restore from a few days ago?
