You do not mention which OS you are using, so we can't suggest which
tool to use to try to capture a traffic dump from the Unix socket (if
such a dump is even possible on your OS).

The only time that I know of when Cyrus does something "awkward" is that
it refuses messages with embedded literal NUL characters; if it's
quoted-printable or base64, that's obviously okay.  If Cyrus rejects the
message quickly whilst the MTA is still sending and the MTA gets upset,
that might explain what you're seeing.  That idea contains a lot of
speculation and wild-arsed guessing.
