I suspect that what you are doing is starting the moo manually instead
of using the script file that came with it. The script file
automatically renames TribalMOO.db.new to TribalMOO.db before restarting
the server. If you have a system backup shortly after shutting down
and restarting, you might be able to recover and rename the .new file,
getting all your lost data back.
