Hmm. I'm not 100% certain, but I thought the license stuff was still in
You can use 'nsradmin' on the offline database, usually as
nsradmin -d /nsr/res/nsrdb (I'm assuming "directory type" database).
You should be able to see the licenses with "print type:nsr license" and
remove them with "delete type:nsr license"

You should be able to mix and match. For instance, I might try doing an
'mmrecov' on top of the copied /nsr. It shouldn't take that long and
would leave the indexes in place.
I would agree that I don't understand what is causing the difference
that you're seeing now.
