Insertion Error: Table doesn't exist - The template was not applied.

Hi

I am on WP 3.1 MS, BP 1.2.8 and have just installed Multi-DB (256 dbs).

I am starting a new thread as I could not find a matching post in spite of searching..

upon registering a new site I get the following error (right after clicking confirmation link from email).

Insertion Error: Table 'user_db_global.wp_32_sticky' doesn't exist - The template was not applied. (New Blog Templates - With CREATE TABLE query for Additional Tables).

checking the global database does not show any wp_32 tables (neither does any of the other dbs). BP does register the user, but not showing the avatar, although uploading the pic does not create any error.

No relevant error message found in the logs.

The new site is created and looks quite as expected.

Any idea, why this happens or how to fix it?

Any hints welcome, I am a bit helpless at the moment after quite a bit of upgrading, so I will try to go backwards and remove Multi-DB to see what happens. Will report back here, but maybe in the meantime someone has an insight for me... thanks.
