There is a particular thing that drupal does for identifying multiple 
nodes of a single module.  The convention there is to name the nodes 
modulename-nodename, such as project-issue.  Thus, you might catch 
problems using dashes, too.  I think the best thing is to mash it all 
together.  I think "helpdb" works, but then again, I'm no good at naming 
thing for the most part :)   It took me weeks to come up with 
"relativity" and that's because of a concerted effort (it was 
attached_node2 for all too long).
