    view db_dumper and db_loader, this can fail and no error will
    related to this failed reformat will be logged. This leaves the

    The following error may be seen in a trace:
    2016-01-22T17:16:36.722890::TRACE::RVAGENT::RVAgent_Startview::p

    View database initialization failed
    
    The only workaround for this is to create a new view.
