No. I thought about doing a dump...but since it was _supposed_ to be
a simple file move, I didn't. My bad :( I guess I should have researched
the quirks of BDB more.

That is definitely on my list for this weekend.

FWIW, I'm still not sure exactly what instigated this problem, but somewhere
I found advice to delete some log files and then try a recover. As it turns
out, following that advice exaserbated the problem. Once I realized that
for BDB the log files are actually _important_, I simply restored the files
from a backup, did a recover and viola! Everything back to normal.
