I haven't tested the attachments thoroughly yet, so I don't know  
whether it worked.  I just used one of our regular backup dumps, which  
isn't massively complicated.  Our RT instance is replicated, and we  
back up off the slave using:

mysqldump --defaults-extra-file=/mysql/data_3307/slave.cnf  --single- 
transaction --flush-logs --master-data=2 --all-databases -q | gzip >  

Are there particular attachment types I should look for to check  
whether things are working?
