Just a tip in case you're not already familiar with this - if you try
restoring from autobackup w/o specifying the backup piece, it can take a
long time for rman to search backwards through the catalog from 255 to 0
looking for the latest autobackup sequence on each day.  The workaround
is to set the maxseq parameter, like this (as documented in Metalink

restore spfile from autobackup maxseq=02;

Btw, were you able to restore controlfile knowing just DBID and no names
for the autobackup piece(s)?
