Is There A Method To Remove Auto Repair Entries For A Mailbox That No Longer Exists On the Store? (Doc ID 2168054.1)

We keep the user's message files on one file system and the store.idx, store.c<n>, etc. files for the same on a different file system.  After we rehost the user with rehostuser command from the source mail store to a new destination mail store, we continue to keep the user's message files on one file system, but delete the store.idx, store.c<n> files from the other file system on the source mail store.  There was a change in behavior in MS 7u5 p38 with mboxutil command that resulted in triggering auto repair requests for this broken mailbox on the source mail store.  User's mailbox works fine on the destination store.  However, there are now millions of auto repair requests queued up in the maintenance queue.

Is there a method to removing auto repair entries for a mailbox that no longer even exists on the store?
