Impact of changing back "altnamespace"

A week or so back I posted here about issues I was having with 
cyrus-imapd 2.3 after changing the "altnamespace" variable in imapd.conf 
to "yes" in order to set up shared mailboxes. It threw a monkey wrench 
into my server and caused a lot of problems for a couple of days Things 
have settled down but still some residual problems for users in their 
email clients, e.g. Inbox contents disappears or does not show recent 
mail. Also deleting hangs for a long time.

I'm considering changing "altnamespace" back to "no" hoping it will 
clear up those issues.

Any thoughts as to what I can expect if I do this? All input is appreciated!
