Thanks, Jeffrey.

I've looked at the backup repositories and back chex files.  I think I've
tried too many things to fix the problem and subsequently overwritten the
meaningful backups with meaningless ones.

At this point all I have is an old snapshot that throws the originally
stated error every time I try to load it.  Does anyone know how I can fix a
broken db or extract from it the events.  At the very minimum a list of
event titles would be enough.  Thanks.
