Here's what I think happened.

I've had this setting since upgrading from 1.5.19 to 2.1.11 in 2002:

>  hashimapspool: true

Ie. it's not new.

So when I ran this command meant for an upgrade from 1.5.* to 2.* things
where messed up:

>     $ /usr/lib/cyrus/upgrade/rehash basic

The rehash script expected a 1.5 structure to work with, and when I fed
it a 2.1 structure, it moved the wrong directories in the wrong place.

So the question is what I can do to fix it...?

If I move 
 mail/u/user/s/sb /
would that fix things...?
