The mapping tool is designed to avoid using existing tables and  
columns when mapping previously-unmapped portions of your object  
model.  Apparently you're deleting the mapping file periodically, so  
every run the tool thinks the model is unmapped -- how could it know  
otherwise?  So either start over and stop deleting your mapping file  
all the time, or if you want the table to be named something  
specific, just stick the "table='XXX'" attribute on the <class>  
element in your package.jdo file.  The tool will see the mapping  
instruction and carry it over to the mapping file.  I believe the  
docs cover all this in more detail.
