Don't put pipes from external software on postfix internal directories.

# mkdir /var/spool/postfix/cyrus-socket
# chown cyrus:postfix /var/spool/postfix/cyrus-socket
# chmod 750 /var/spool/postfix/cyrus-socket

 lmtpunix cmd="lmtpd" listen="/var/spool/postfix/cyrus-socket/lmtp" prefork=1

With lmtp chroot:
    mailbox_transport = lmtp:unix:/cyrus-socket/lmtp

Without chroot:
    mailbox_transport = lmtp:unix:/var/spool/postfix/cyrus-socket/lmtp
