Bug Description

All versions of xtrabackup including 1.6.4, 1.6.5, and 1.9.1 all fail when apply logs with the error:

InnoDB: Error: innodb_extra_undoslots option is disabled, but it was enabled before.
InnoDB: The datafile is not normal for mysqld and disabled innodb_extra_undoslots.
InnoDB: Enable innodb_extra_undoslots if it was enabled before, and
InnoDB: ### don't use this datafile with other mysqld or ibbackup! ###
InnoDB: Cannot continue operation for the safety. Calling exit(1).
innobackupex: Error:
innobackupex: ibbackup failed at /usr/bin/innobackupex line 349.

I'm running MySQL 5.1.56 on a clean install Red Hat 5.8. The MySQL install was built by Rackspace so I'm trying to scare up the source code from them to make sure nothing strange is happening. Let me know what else you folks need to get this off the ground. We picked up the same error when we tried to switch over to the Percona Server binaries as well.

Can you give the full command that was used to apply logs and its full output?
