Hi Robert,
  I did not see any suggestions to you.  So here is one.  If you want
a guarantee simple brute force dump the entire DB with mysqldump and
recreate of the slave.
For Exmaple
mysqldump --opt mydb | mysql -umyuser -pmypwd -hremotehost myremotedb

You can run this through an ssh tunnel for security or compress and
forward or do it in multiple steps.  But if it completes without
errors all data will be present on the remote system.

Hope this helps,
