Well, assuming, this doesn't turn out to be a bug, and you really
do need to run db_recover on the backups, you need to explicitly
list the steps to restore from the hot-backup.

What do you mean "copy them out"? Copy them to where? It's possible
my running db_recover just did this for me.

Um, it doesn't look like you thought that. You just told me i had
to "copy out" logfiles. In any case, grab one of these hot backup
directories and checkout from it. You'll see what i'm talking
