You've managed to create a hybrid directory with some files from ec3.1 and
others from ec3.2. Delete the whole directory and start again.

If you want to be able to switch between the two different version, then put
them in different (sensibly named) directories. Both versions should appear in
your plug-in manager. Make sure you never ever have both of them active at the
same time.

Eh? Why would you need to change your database?

Why are you deleting events? Just let the plug-in do its stuff. You can safely
revert from v3.2 to v3.1 without having to change your database.
