... yeah, and this is the wrong answer.  It's *exceedingly* unlikely
that plopping in the pg_attribute file from a different database will
accomplish anything except to make matters far worse.  Even if the other
DB has exactly the same tables and exactly the same columns in those
tables, it likely doesn't have the same OID assignments.
