Windows XP - Corrupt secedit.sdb

Sigh. Another day, another problem.
This time it was the logging of Event ID 1202, source SceCli and Event ID 1000, source Userenv. I looked in C:\WINDOWS\security\logs\netlogon.log and found that there was an "Error creating database".
A quick google found MSKB 278316. I followed the instructions, but the note about ignoring the "access denied" error is bogus. I got round this by opening security.sdb instead of secedit.sdb, then renaming it to secedit.sdb after creating the database and closing MMC. My quest for eradicating errors in the Event Log continues...
