You don't have all of the Modules installed. What is the output from
your admin/genconfig page? I bet it includes:

	SQL::Statement not installed.
	IMPORTANT: UI Database editors will not work properly.

The other possibility is you removed your mv_metadata database. If you
did, the UI will still work if you get the latest from CVS.
