This bug says to me that we shouldn't be creating the tables all at 
once, we should be creating them in the "checksetup timeline flow".

(We all know checksetup.pl needs a spanking anyway.)

But if we fix problems like the one above, then it doesn't matter how 
far back you go. If 2.8 upgrades successfully to 2.10, and 2.10 to 2.12, 
and so on, then everything is fine.
