reconstruct doing nothing

Hi Bart,

I think 
su cyrus -c "/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -rfx
user/hiddenfirstname^hiddenlastname at"

Should be su cyrus -c "/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -rfx
user/hiddenfirstname^hiddenlastname at dafra^be"

Or su cyrus -c "/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -rfx
user/hiddenfirstname.hiddenlastname at"

Spoke too soon I believe: I see reconstruct do some stuff, but the cyrus.*
files are unaffected. Also, a folder I restored is not processed by

I used this command:

su cyrus -c "/usr/lib/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -rfx
user/hiddenfirstname^hiddenlastname at"

All files have ownership "cyrus:mail"

Any idea on why he doesn't touch the restored folders?
