Yes, that would be the one.  Though as I said, when doing a restore, I 
always drop the existing mythconverg schema (which is usually from a fresh 
installation) manually before restoring to make sure it's gone.  So I'm not 
sure I see the difference, I am putting back my data clean, not "merging" it 
with existing data.  Even if I forgot to drop it once or twice that Saturday 
morning, we're talking several attempts that failed, and each time I started 
over again with the same db backup (i.e. I never made another one after my 
initial)...I didn't forget to drop it every time.

That said, point made :).

And apparently a new and improved Magic 8 Ball. :)
