Default Postfix random delivery problem

Hi everyone, lately I noticed that sometimes Postfix seems to ignore the pr=sence of a .forward file in the user folder, and so hands out the message =o the lmtpunix delivery program, which doesn't find a cyrus mailbox folder=and replies to the sender that the user is not known with 550-Mailbox unkn=wn.

Does everybody have any suggestion?

Thanks in advance

Following I attached the error and the main.cf
