Table corruption :P

A bit strange as I always reboot cleanly, but in any case not related to
systemd. Could be that I never noticed this failing (haven't used the
databases in many months).

chkconfig forwards things right? I'm still using chkconfig + service.

Don't have /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf. My keyboard layout
is&was standard (US). I have capslock as compose key in xorg, but didn't
check if that is still working.

Nice! Because then I can finish the GNOME upgrade :-)
(most pending stuff is either waiting on systemd, or new
evolution-data-server.. and cannot upgrade evolution-data-server without
upgrading the stuff which wants a newer systemd)
