Well that wasn’t a hard decision.
I dumped & dropped the database, recreated it using the 2.0.9 schema, and
re-imported. Man, was I sweating! It worked just fine though.

It’s misleading, I’ll admit. Big-ass amount of stuff cached. The really important line is the -/+ buffers/cache line, which makes is clear I’ve got almost 400MB of RAM free.
