Ah...it does appear I was confusing flushtree and flushname in the
most specific doc I could find -

I have to apologize for that.  I'd still definitely be curious to know
what info is stored in the ADB though since according to the docs ADB
was never intended to be flushed with a "flushtree" (although that has
now apparently been addressed in a new version as stated earlier in
the thread).
