That sounds like a real strange problem alright! How did you run the bdbreconfig and bdbpre? Both from a session or command-line or a mix? Did you use the same client/server settings for the bdbpre/bdbreconfig? (e.g. db_resource etc)?
Otherwise I can only think of some sort of caching issue. Worth checking out with Baan Support I would say.
