I think I've read all the available information regarding the issue, but 
I'm still confused. We're still running 2.3.x for production, but I have a 
test system with a copy of the production data. We use fulldirhash. When I 
installed 2.4.14, I encountered the hashing issue. So now I ran the rehash 
script after updating to 2.4.16:

$ time /usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/rehash -v -F /etc/imapd.conf
you are using /var/lib/imap/sieve as your sieve directory.
i will also hash partitions.
converting configuration directory /var/lib/imap... mkdir 
/var/lib/imap/lock: done
user quota done
sieve /var/lib/imap/sieve... rename /var/lib/imap/sieve/global to 
/var/lib/imap/sieve/V/global: done
partition /var/spool/imap... done
partition /var/spool/imap2... done
partition /var/spool/imap3... done
partition /var/spool/imap4... done
partition /var/spool/imap5... done
partition /var/spool/imap6... done

real	0m7.232s
user	0m5.639s
sys	0m0.227s

Just seven seconds? And I don't see much actual rehashing, except for the 
global sieve directory. What am I missing?
