OK, I've discovered the answer to my own question, it should be useful 
information for other people out there.

The upgrading process from MySQL 4.0 to 4.1 changed the length of text

This is because the 'sessions' table had its 'ip' field truncated to 5 

The other problems had similar causes.

I've got Koha working again by dropping all the tables in the Koha 
database and re-importing the data from my backup.  The 'mysqldump' 
command defaults to creating backups that don't specify character 
encodings for the tables, so they've all defaulted to UTF-8 on import.

I'm very glad I made that backup!
