*sigh*  No, not in a virtual domain environment they don't.  Try adding

13a. Run "su cyrus -c '/usr/local/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -x -f  
13b. Run "su cyrus -c '/usr/local/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -x -f  
13c. Run "su cyrus -c '/usr/local/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -x -f  
13d. Run "su cyrus -c '/usr/local/cyrus/bin/reconstruct -x -f  
...etc whatever depth of folders people have.
