Our master host crashed last night and the qmaster doesn't start after
the reboot.  It stops with

    Project "CPU-1101-14".
error: Spoolfile for project "CPU-1101-14" containes invalid name

and a quick check in qmaster/projects shows, that almost all project files
have a name field that doesn't correspond to the file name.  The same
was true for two files in qmaster/users, but I simply removed those two
files.  Now I am a little worried to do this with the projects files.
What happens if the files are not there?  Will they be reconstructed at
startup, or is this information lost?
