If you don't need the data in the 3.0.6 database, try using mysqldump
on the original database with --opt and --all. Then drop and recreate
the database on the 3.0.6 machine and run the dump output back into
that version of mysql.

At least that's what I've been doing when I've totally hosed my
database. You should be doing those dumps as part of your routine
backup procedures.
