You can specify the dbname.userdb in yourcat/dbconf/mysql/userdb.mysql, 
i.e.: at the top of the file:

Database  userdb  userdb.txt   dbi:mysql:dbname
Database  userdb  USER         sqlusername
Database  userdb  PASS         sqlpassword

...in this way the catalog can use a userdb table from a different database 
than what is used for the rest of the tables. But you will not be able to 
have customers go from catalog to catalog and remain signed in.
