I believe running the rebuildMessages.php script (from the command
line) in the maintenance directory should re-update the messages.

Be forewarned: using DB messages is pretty darn expensive in terms of
performance, unless you're using memcached. I really wish I could turn
them off, but 1.2.x seems to need them for {{msg:}} transclusion.
