Basically what has happened is you've allowed the merge to replace all
the custom metadata in the catalog causing any number of problems.
That's not the first time I've seen it happen, I had a client decide to
do it because they saw a nice big message in the Admin UI and it screwed
up their catalog as well.  Basically put, when you run the metadata
merge you're supposed to know what metadata you've modified yourself and
avoid merging it.

Find a backup copy of catroot/products/mv_metadata.gdbm from right
before you ran the merge and replace the file, then delete
mv_metadata.asc and restart Interchange, or you can do it the other way
around (replace the .asc file and delete the .gdbm one then restart).
