[Mediawiki-l] "Error in fetchObject(): Got error 1 from storage engine"

We're running a Mac mini with Mac OS X Tiger (home, not "server")
as (among other things) our web server.  It runs PHP 4.4.4 and
we have upgraded to MediaWiki 1.6.8.  We migrated from FreeBSD 4.7,
where MediaWiki ran fine.

Unfortunately, we're having problems in migrating MediaWiki.  If we
load in a fresh copy of MW, we get no errors.  However, if we shut
things down, copy over the MySQL database directories from the old
box, and restart things, we get:

  Error in fetchObject(): Got error 1 from storage engine
