Look in the /etc subdirectory - you can set this here (Dont forget to 
apply changes)
username.counter  (You will need to reset this also)

I'm not too sure about the above errors, but I noticed many new 
database fields in the new catalog files. Some of these fields were 
also type cast different. I went through each file, and added these 
new fields to my existing database (mysql) structures - and now have 
a working catalog.

Hope this helps somewhat...
