HELP! Bridge Batch Rename Flub, Lost Metadata XMP/sidecar file associations!

After spending several days in Camera Raw editing a whole photo shoot's worth of images that created those sidecar .xmp files, I then used Bridge (CS3 2.1.1.9) to do a batch rename of the original raw files. Stupidly, I used periods in the text batch rename (e.g. "IMG_3876.CR2" became something li
