Oooohh, look who answered his own question:
# How can I move a database from one transactional environment into another?
# Because database pages contain references to log records, databases cannot
# be simply moved into different database environments. To move a database
# into a different environment, dump and reload the database before moving it.
# If the database is too large to dump and reload, the database may be
# prepared in place by setting the first eight bytes of each database page in
# the file to 0.
# # I'm seeing the error "log_flush: LSN past current end-of-log", what does
# that mean?
# The most common cause of this error is that a system administrator has
# removed all of the log files from a database environment. You should shut
# down your database environment as gracefully as possible, first flushing the
# database environment cache to disk, if that's possible. Then, dump and
# reload your databases. If your databases are too large to dump and reload,
# the database may be repaired in place by setting the first eight bytes of
# each database page in the file to 0, but if you do that, you must verify
# your databases before using them again. (It is possible for the databases to
# be corrupted when this happens, and the longer the application runs, the
# worse it can get.)
