Is there a way to force the Express Migration Tool (v1.0 in my case*) to re-syncronize security items. It seems that this is a known issue that it will only sync security users and roles once. (See this KB article which indicates this is still an issue in v2.0).

I'm assuming it writes some sort of marker somewhere.

FWIW - it looks like everything is stored in a SQLite db called migration.db which is in the directory where the Migration Tool was run from. I renamed this, had to re-specify all my paths & connection strings and it migrated the users.
