I don't think so.

Look into /home/user/.rtcom-eventlogger/ or .rtcom-messaging-ui/ - this is
where Conversations databases are stored. But to be honest I don't know if
there's any way to recover any corruptions from there. There was something
related to this problem on this list sometime ago (shortly after PR1.2
release, afair). Try to look around or perhaps wait until someone wiser will
say something.
