I think the suggested solution is don't use bdb for the /var/lib/cyrus 
databases?  The default in 2.4.x is skiplists.

I know this has been mentioned or alluded to several times, but I'm 
still a bit unclear on how to convert an existing set of cyrus bdb 
databases to skiplists on a production system.
