I've never had a mysql upgrade trash my databases, but it sounds like
the simple solution is to 'mysqladmin create "database name"' first.
Though the -A does seem to put create database commands in the dump file.
You might look at the sql and find out what's broken...

I tried dumping all mine, and got a "client out of memory" error.  Weird.

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we
are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic
and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.
-Theodore Roosevelt, 26th US President (1858-1919)
