These are the commands I use and it has never failed me. Thanks to Mike 
Dean and his script..

mysql -uroot -p -e 'DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS mythconverg;'

  mysql -uroot -p < /home/greg/mythtv/database/mc.sql  (adjust paths to 
suit your install)

mythconverg_restore.pl --directory (my backups are stored here, you 
would need to adjust your paths) /mnt/video3/db_backups --filename   
(your most current back up) .sql.gz
