A point's id and userid are used to relate it to the database. When a 
checkpoints file is loaded the currently loaded database is checked to see 
if any of the checkpoint data is out of date. If so, then the information 
about the point from the database is used. If the checkpoint isn't found in 
the current database then the information is used as supplied. If you update 
a point's information and you have that point marked as a checkpoint then 
you should probably resave your checkpoints file to make sure all 
information is up to date. If you only ever use a single database then you 
don't have to worry about this as much.
