I got many of that messages after an unexpected shutdown  of our SAN.
Just reconstruct your mailboxes
Most of the time you can find them in the log and you can reconstruct 
them via my perl script

open (FIC,"</var/log/imapd.log") or die "Ouverture imapd.log impossible $!";
# Sep 18 15:34:43 smtp imap[13895]: DBERROR: opening 
/var/lib/imap/user/l/l^e.seen: cyrusdb error
while (<FIC>){
   if (/DBERROR: opening (\S+): cyrusdb error/) {$HBadSeen{$1}=1;}
   elsif (/smtp (imap|pop3|pop3s|imaps)\[(\d+)\]: open: user (\S+) /){
   elsif (/process (\d+) exited, signaled/){
      #print "mbox ".$Hpid{$1}." damaged\n";
foreach (sort keys %badbox){
   print "reconstruct: $_\n";
   `su - cyrus -c "reconstruct -rf user/$_"`;
   `su - cyrus -c "quota -f user/$_"`;
foreach (keys %HBadSeen){
   print "Correction seen: $_\n";
   `/bin/rm $_`;
