Nothing.  I just tried deleting the cyrus.* files and that works.  I was 
replicating this installation to another (new) 2.4.7 installation, 
starting about a week ago.
All of the messages a few days after that weren't indexed in the 
INBOXen.  Fortunately it's a small installation.
If I nuke everyone's index files and reconstruct, then add them to the 
replication log, will that cause problems?
I was just switching to the new installation.  Will the new server get 
confused if I let people use it will it is being synced to?
I have probably six, maybe 12 hours before people will complain.
