Not sure what you mean "start it against the USB drive". I copied from 'old'
-> USB -> 'new' /var/lib/mysql/*. At no time did I run the database pointing
at the USB drive (is that even possible? I guess a symlink or something
maybe with mods to app armor). The 'old' is growing and changing dates
because it is still live and actually in production. This 'new' box is going
to be used for a demo at a conference and is therefore a copy from about a
month ago and will not grow in size, but the dates will change as I muck
with the data on it.

	Johnny, 
	 
	I'm less worried about the month in between than the fact that all
of the dates for the files on his USB data should be roughly the same.  It
looks to me like he tried to start it against the data on the USB drive.
Another question is, was this an cold backup or hot backup?  If this were a
hot backup, I could see this problem happening.  If it were a could backup,
it should work.
