 	Timely subject... I just rolled over to a new production system 
and had to transfer the DB.  Mine's 37 MB uncompressed after right about 2 
years.  Just ported the 4 tables of oldrecorded, etc to the new machine.

 	Quick question, though.  Anyone else experienced some database 
corruption and/or mismatching with the filesystem?  Though what's likely 
operator error, I've got a few recordings that don't exist, but refuse to 
be deleted.  Any sort of "mythdbrebuild" to clean stuff up?
