Hm... okay first off you shouldn't be checkpointing to .db, you should
specify an outfile by doing "moo whatever.db port" (or get
the restart script) And the database can't be extracted from the core file
easily, since it's stored the way the moo has it in memory, not in a
readable .db format (I tihnk they are different).
