Hm. Of course it is possible that this is, at heart,  a PEBKAC issue.  
I will try to replicate my experience, perhaps I was too hasty in  
jumping on the ML ...

I unfortunately was testing with copies of production user data and if  
I did that my boss would literally eviscerate me; regardless I  
unthinkingly deleted it upon seeing the error without considering its  
significance. However, I will be testing it thoroughly with non- 
production data and will send that if it happens again. I've tried the  
replication another two times without problems so I really don't know  
what's up.

Anyway, thanks for the clarifications - I had thought it shouldn't be  
possible for that to happen, and everything you described was just as  
I had thought/assumed! Perhaps I just got "lucky" : )
