I have added a cron job to make a copy that file every day at midnight
with a date timestamp in the file name.  I also have daily scheduled
backups of the entire FreePBX installation and databases through
FreePBX itself but this approach seems a little more convenient.

We have had similar incidents in the past which we could never
determine the cause of before it was somehow rectified.  I infer that
on each occasion something we tried simply caused the astdb file to be
rebuilt and thereby corrected the issue without us ever being aware
that is what happened.
