Ok, there's no way of telling what folders got succesfully upgraded, 
right? I only see messages "Index upgrade failed: user.paul", indicating 
the ones that failed :-S

(A selective reconstruct would be faster.)

So, just the reconstruct problem, or more of my symptoms? (I've looked 
at the devel archive and the info-cyrus, but did not see anything 
similar, or from last night anyway ;-) so I have no idea what issue

Hmm, 3 hours will be quite late here, but if you can help me understand 
if the patch would solve "all" my symptoms, it might be worth it.

But I have the feeling its not just reconstruct (as even after 
succesfull reconstructs I still get errors, and I didn't expect this 
many errors initially anyway).
