This will definetly want to be a complete mailbox description! How it is
represented in cyrus depends on your version and imapd.conf! Try
"reconstruct -r user.username" or "reconstruct user/username" or
"reconstruct user/username@cyrus-virt-domain" ! It works! Only
reconstruct -m currenty is not supported...

Are you running all these as the cyrus-user ?

What does syslog tell you about it ? Do you have propper permissions on
configdirectory and partitions ?
