reconstruct will remove the expunged data if you don't specify the -k 
option, also if it's not able to verify the cyrus.expunge file as 
valid, it will delete it and put all messages back into the index.  
I posted a patch to the dev list which addresses this and a couple of 
other issues in reconstruct.  In this case it looks like the 
cyrus.expunge file was corrupted since the expunge_index_base isn't 
valid.  Possibly due to a previous issue with the expunge file.
