[drupal-devel] Themes causing database corruption?

I am using Drupal 4.5.2 with the default Bluemarine theme. The database is
MySQL 3.23. The site is this: http://portal.wikinerds.org
I tried many of the themes that can be found at drupal.org, including
Sunflower, Goofy, Kubrick, Interlaced and many more. After I tested many
themes I decided to return to my default Bluemarine theme.
When I loaded the Bluemarine again, everything was messed up:
- The sidebar was on the left instead of on the right.
- My site logo and name was not showing up
- My site footer was hidden
- My primary links and secondary links weren't showing up
- The article titles were not clickable as before
- When I checked some articles, I was seeing some random characters instead
of the article text.
It is not a caching issue on my browser because I tested it with many
What I did then was to download the original Drupal 4.5.2 again and set-up the
site from the beginning using the same database. So, I replaced all code,
without of course copying the non-default themes. I had again a default
Drupal installation using the same database. The display was still incorrect,
which makes me to believe that somehow the database got corrupt.
Note: I use the Feedback and Excerpt modules.
One of the themes I tried was Goofy, and another user has posted this bug
However I don't know whether it was Goofy which caused the problem, because I
tested many other themes too.
I have a database backup from Feb-1, but it doesn't contain the newest content
such as the GNU/Hurd article.
I also tried the other default themes of Drupal and they don't work, either.
Any help is appreciated. I would never imagine that testing some themes would
cause these terrible problems! I can login to my site and change settings,
but the display is all messed up. It isn't what my site readers would want to
