OK, I did a 'drop database'... it seemed to work. Should I have dropped all the tables first?? Anyway, if I try to drop it again, it tells me it can't drop it, it doesn't exist. If I try to restore my database (which first of all does a 'create database') it tells me it can't create it, it already exists. Sigh. Any ideas?

It looks like you didn't drop anything. Linux & Unix software (unless it's written to be case-insensitive) is always case sensitive. So typo and TYPO are not the same. You want to 'drop database TYPO'.
