I've run it once and no problems. Not good. Were you able to recover them?

I might recommend that you repair permissions in Disk Utilities. If you can boot from another disk, run Disk First Aid, as well. If you can't do that, boot into single-user mode and run fsck -f. FWIW, the way you write, it is not surprising that you are confused.
