Ah - cannot remember any issues/errors.

No - as I wanted to start from scratch and drop a load of duff old
config I seem to have amassed in 4 years (old versions of myth did not
appear to mind name changes as much as 0.22).

Going back is not really an option as user acceptance testing has
finished and it now in production!

I can fix it with comflag --reppair

Sorry for the confusion & thanks for the help.
