Someone ate my *.db

This is a strange situation for this strange question.
I was mucking about with my Unix server... not moving anything at
random, but just checking out my moo directory and considering moving
from 1.7.X to 1.8. Nothing serious. I noticed that there was a version
of my *.db, moise.db in both directories, but that the dates associated
with them were March 16 and March 20 respectively. But my Moo IS
running! When I ran ps -umoo, I was told that it was running and saving
the db to moise.bd.new. But I couldn't find it.
I typed in find / -name 'moise.bd' -print and got nothing but these two
oldies noted above.
I shutdown the moo and looked for it. No luck.
Any ideas? This is only a major catastrophy, not a terminal one, as
this is not a production Moo, yet. But I can't have this continuing
when we open soon enough.
TIA for all comments.
