Multiple copies of cyr_expire running

I notice that there are two of these running today:

    $ ps -fp "$(pgrep cyr_expire)"
         UID   PID  PPID   C    STIME TTY         TIME CMD
       cyrus  2510   986   3 04:00:01 ?         219:28 cyr_expire -E 3
       cyrus 18280   986   3   Apr 27 ?        1580:15 cyr_expire -E 3

There are also lots of errors like this.  They refer to the same
message over and over again:

    Apr 28 08:07:56 castor cyr_expire[18280]: [ID 264569 local6.error] DBERROR: mydelete: error deleting <200904201356.n3KDuJes008536 at>: DB_NOTFOUND: No matching key/data pair found

Should I kill one of the cyr_expire processes?  Is there a safe way
to do this?  Is the duplicate delivery database broken?  Is there a
way to fix it?
