"service cyrus-imapd start" and "/etc/init.d/cyrus-imapd start" are the
exact same thing; as "/etc/init.d/cyrus-imapd start" is what "service
cyrus-imapd start" does.  The init script does a "$RUNUSER - cyrus
-c ...."  I believe this error indicates that $RUNUSER is failing.
RUNUSER is "/sbin/runuser" (if that file exists) or else it is "su".
[Assuming your run scripts are the same as mine, I've using the Invoca
packages].  If you just try to run "/usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/cyrus-master
-C /etc/imapd.conf -M /etc/cyrus.conf -p /var/run/cyrus-master.pid" does
the master daemon start?
