Today I updated namecoin by building the new "namecore" reimplementation but when starting
namecoind I got this message:
Error opening block database. Do you want to rebuild the block database now?
and before I could do anything
So I moved away the
Namecoin folder and let it regenerate everything, blockchain included.
This time it started without errors, so I copied my
wallet.dat into the folder and restarted
namecoind but I got an
Error: and it crashed again.
debug.log shows this:

I figured the wallet format has changed somehow, so using the old client I dumped the private keys and I succefully imported them using
importprivkey. I can see the address, the balances and all but
name_list shows nothing.
How do I get back my names now?
