loading an sql file into mysql, often fails when loading the 'letter' table

i have no idea why. the quick-fix is to drop - then create the database


$ mysql koha_test < koha.sql
ERROR 1005 (HY000) at line 3237: Can't create table 'koha_test.letter' (errno: 150)

hmmm, i bumped into this problem again... 

'show engine innodb status' hints that its a foreign-key problem?

------------------------
LATEST FOREIGN KEY ERROR
------------------------
121212  4:06:49 Error in foreign key constraint of table head/message_transports
:
there is no index in referenced table which would contain
the columns as the first columns, or the data types in the
referenced table do not match the ones in table. Constraint:
,
  CONSTRAINT "message_transports_ibfk_3" FOREIGN KEY ("letter_module", "letter_c
ode", "branchcode") REFERENCES "letter" ("module", "code", "branchcode") ON DELE
TE CASCADE ON UPDATE CASCADE
The index in the foreign key in table is "message_transports_ibfk_3"
See http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/innodb-foreign-key-constraints.html
for correct foreign key definition.

just a little update...

it seems this error is triggered when a koha-3.6 .sql file is loaded into an existing koha-3.8 database


so, this is ok
 $ mysql koha < ./koha-3.6.sql
 $ mysql koha < ./koha-3.8.sql

but this fails
 $ mysql koha < ./koha-3.8.sql
 $ mysql koha < ./koha-3.6.sql


hope that helps someone :)

ahh, thats probably a koha 3.6 .sql file, or *earlier*

This is certainly not valid anymore.
Please reopen if I am wrong.
