Ah-ha--I think that was the missing piece.

So I *think* what I have to do in my case based on some experimentation
with this on a clean VM is:

* delete existing _users database (it was created via port 5984)
* create new _users database on port 5986
* re-create user accounts

On the clean VM I was messing with this morning nuking the _users database
didn't cause any issues but is there anything I should be aware of with
that process?

Thanks for clarifying!
