Well, now that you mention it my database is sort of screwed up and I
never understood why until now...
Here is the script you refernce:

-- Mssql upgrade to v2

Create Table %PREFIX%SchemaVersion (Version Integer);
Insert Into %PREFIX%SchemaVersion (Version) Values (2);
Alter Table %PREFIX%SessionLog Add Column EndTime DateTime;
EXEC sp_rename '%PREFIX%SessionLog.Date', 'StartTime', 'COLUMN'

This %PREFIX% stuff is presumably replaced by CVSNT with something,
which in my case turns out to be "CVSNT."
The result is that new tables are created in the databse with similar
but different names. I now have duplicates in the database:

dbo.CommitLog  AND CVSNT.CommitLog
dbo.HistoryLog AND CVSNT.HistoryLog
dbo.SessionLog AND CVSNT.SessionLog
dbo.TagLog     AND CVSNT.TagLog

The column names are different between the tables too, for instance in
SessionLog I have Date (dbo) and StartTime (CVSNT)

There are various other differences as well....

How did this happen?
There is now data spread over two sets of tables, not the best
But in the new table the Date column has been replaced by StartTime.
