Repeat recovers on databases

This appears to be an issue in addition to the freeze-ups we're having.

Given all the dumping and undumping I'm doing in the name of debugging, 
this may not be surprising, but I keep seeing instances where a database 
gets into some state wherein any process that opens it decides to run a 
recover on it before doing anything.  Running a ctl_cyrusdb -r, even with 
all other processes stopped, does not seem to change this behavior.  The 
next time a cyrus process starts up, whether it's an imapd, mupdate, or 
ctl_mboxlist, the process goes and does a recover before doing anything 

Has anyone else seen this?  I've seen it on brand-new, newly "undumped" 
databases in the past week.
