Oh, I forgot to mention, the mirror was on the current machine, but I
created a new user and repeated the exact same steps (starting from
tla my-id) to register an archive, etc. So I didn't have to unregister
anything... 'cos I started from scratch.

In this case, it's a remote mirror (which is on my machine,
magrathea).  The 'remote' machine I'm talking about, where I created a
new user, etc, is a friend's laptop to which I don't have access right
now; I'll post the commands and their output tomorrow.
