I'm currently logging up to severity info (because debug would flood the logs 
while all users are working).

I just see in the logs:
IOERROR: refreshing index for user.skotschote.IMGM: Success
IOERROR: locking index user.skotschote.IMGM: Mailbox has an invalid format

No patches are applied (are there any which are suggested?).

./configure \
         --prefix=/usr \
         --bindir=/usr/lib/cyrus-imapd \
         --libdir=/usr/lib \
         --exec-prefix=/usr/lib/cyrus-imapd \
         --with-cyrus-prefix=/usr/lib/cyrus-imapd \
         --sysconfdir=/etc \
         --enable-idled \
         --disable-nntp \
         --without-bdb \
         --with-syslogfacility=MAIL \
         --with-cyrus-user=cyrus \

I'll send you the files in a separate mail, because I'm not sure, it the list 
allows attachments.
