You need to use "Delete all capture cards" (not deleting them
individually with D, nor "Delete all capture cards on <hostname>") to
renumber things properly. You should really re-do it--rather than just
hoping you made all the required edits in the DB, since the DB does not
enforce any of the data constraints.

Good luck. I hope you get that fixed--it definitely sounds like it
could be causing the problems you're seeing.
