Thanks Greg!

So, just to confirm the steps:

1. stop bucardo
2. for eqweb database I do: pg_dump, dropdb, createdb (with-UTF8) and pg_restore - on  all 4 nodes -  slaveO, slaveS, masterO, masterS
3. start bucardo

If you are doing a pg_dump and restore, then everything should be fine - all the Bucardo tables and functions and triggers should get copied as well. Bucardo will not be confused as long as the database name is the same. I don't think you need it, but it might be best to dump it with the --oids flag.
