I'll try mapping the request filter to /index.jsp and see what happens.  
That might be enough to get it jumpstarted.  As for the database, I 
think it was pretty close to stock.  We may have added a new indices or 
two in the last two weeks and other than the four missing indices, it 
seemed to drop everything just fine and run the upgrade script.  I don't 
see anything in the mysql upgrade script that generates those handles or 
creates the relationships.  Am I missing something?
