Lars, do you by any chance still have a copy of the pre-upgrade backup 
that I could get for a test-run with the fix.  We'd like to run a sanity 
check on the fix with real data versus generated data.  If you still 
have it, I'd appreciate your posting a bzip2'ed or gzip'ed copy of the 
backup file at http://filebin.ca/ (or anywhere else you'd like) and 
sending me an e-mail (direct to my address and with the same subject, if 
you don't want it on the list) with the link so I can download it and do 
a test run.
