Using the "new" database looks like it will work for us.   I was under
the impression that the format changed between 4.1 and 4.2.26, so
that --old-format was needed to stay compatible with 4.1, but that's
is apparently not the case.   And, yes, new format databases seem to
be portable across our various platforms.    Thanks for the help.
