I know nothing of strace(). The conversion seems to want to find it at the
old path of ~vpopmail/domains/ and it gladly converts if
it finds the information there. But of course all of the paths are wrong

Since you obviously know the 'big picture' better than I do maybe you can
tell me if this will work. What if I recreate the postmaster account, move
the user directories (besides postmaster) and then import user records into
the mysql.vpopmail.vpopmail table. Will that work? Is it missing anything? I
figure the recreation of postmaster will create the necessary control and
assign files and the copy and import into mysql will handle the individual
users under the domain. What do you think?

What vpopmail needs is a big picture like Dan has put together for qmail. I
think that would be a very valuable resource. Have one that shows the
schematic of qmail/vpopmail using .cdb and then one showing qmail/vpopmail
using mysql. That would be most informative.
