I doubt it, because the same error occurred one day earlier:

May 29 04:53:38 lvr13 cyr_expire[2602]: IOERROR: reading cache record for 
user.aqg04: initial bogus offset 11090136 of 32488 for 5/7; mailbox needs a 
May 29 04:53:38 lvr13 cyr_expire[2602]: failure expiring user.aqg04: System 
I/O error

I interpret the "System I/O error" to be the IOERROR from the line before, 
i.e. not actually an I/O error but rather a corrupt file. The error does 
not show on any of the previous days, nor does it show today.
