The configuration file you used explicitly configured berkeleydb as the 

The bug is triggered if the administrator kept the default settings (and 
I suppose some admins do not change this setting).
The default backend for most cyrus database was berkeleydb before 2.4 
and is now skiplist since 2.4.

Cyrus tries to automagically upgrade from berkeleydb to skiplist and 
this is what didn't work as expected in my tests.

Have a look at the bug I opened upstream 
https://bugzilla.cyrusimap.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3496, I explained the bug 
and attached files which should allow you to reproduce the bug.
You will notice the bug happens the second time you launch cyrus.

(Although I am surprised you didn't run into some berkeleydb problem if 
you upgraded to berkeleydb 4.8).
