Craig the attic has nothing to do with your media or its data bases. It is simply the holder of your Autosave files. When Avid saves your bin, the previous version is saved in the attic. As soon as you deleted the attic, you lost all those original autosave files.

The rebuilding of the databases is useful when the box is not seeing media it should be seeing, but will have no effect at all on your attic. As you move forward with this training sequence, you should see your attic increase in size as your saves occur, but that is all it is there for. Being able to call up an old version of your bin, prior to a change that you want to undo, but don't have enough undos available for.

Am i understanding your question correctly?

As for your final statement
Though i guess getting the basic organization structure and what can go wrong is worth the pain.

In my opinion, the best tutorial in the world is one in which something bad happens, and makes you realize that i should've done this, or shouldn't have done that. "perfect" tutorials are a waste of time.

Edit sessions are never perfect.

hope some of this helps. I started on Avid in '95, and started using Final cut in about '06, and am currently trying to learn premiere as well, so I feel your pain.
