These files, along with everything else in the filesystem part of the 
catalog (all 4G of it - *after* cleaning up temp files), were copied 
as-is via rsync from the live site to the new server.

Somehow, at least the order number got reset, so when the customer ran 
some test orders through the new server, it mangled existig orders.

Do you have a list of the changes you made?
