OK, this is much better (sort of).

Some background: this is a new machine, postgres 8.4, Ubuntu maverick.
I've set up a new database "testinc" using setup.pl and this largely
works OK (with the exception of the (possible) bugs I've reported so far).

I now decided to try and import the production database from our
business, which runs on a different machine, same version of postgres
and Ubuntu. I took the following steps:

1. Dumped a copy of the production database
2. Copied it across to the new machine and copied it into a new database
"test", owned by ledgersmb.
3. Ran up setup.pl, logged in as ledgersmb with database "test",
corrected some duplicate company numbers and some duplicate invoice
numbers, imported an existing user from the "testinc" database.
4. Setup completed without errors.
5. Logged into new database successfully.

All fine so far. However the "test" database is empty, no customers, no
vendors, no transactions, no COA.

A clue may be the following in the dblog_stderr file

psql:/tmp/ledgersmb/1.2-1.3-upgrade.sql:30: ERROR:  null value in column
"heading" violates not-null constraint
