Yes. There is a bug in ejabber_ctl.erl. To fix database restoring you may
apply the attached patch. I have sent it to Aleksey, but probably he is too
busy to apply it to CVS tree (or may be the patch is buggy).

Anyway, if you dump Mnesia database to text file (ejabberdctl node dump path)
then you have to edit the file before loading (ejabberdctl node load path).
Delete all lines which contain numbers in angle brackets, like the following:


After that, DB should be loaded without errors.
