OK. I really, really, hate to have to lose all of the settings that I
have spent literally years honing and fine-tuning.
Why doesn't the usual database schema upgrade handle this in a more
graceful, less destructive manner?
Is there something I can while running my 0,21-fixes system to prevent
this on upgrade? You say the problem was simply missing tables (but I
couldn't find reference to which ones). Can't I just simply create them
before doing the upgrade? Will installing certain myth
components/packages create the needed and missing tables? I'm most
willing to do that.
This really is a bug that needs to be fixed in the upgrade, IMHO. I am
at least the second person to run into it and making people have to grub
through the database and lose all of their setting just to upgrade is
