To begin with, AFAIK, the switch to Barracuda affects only new tables, so the tables of your existing Mibew database should stay intact.

Then, Mibew doesn't use any Antelope-specific features (and actually doesn't perform any direct operations with the database at all), so I don't believe that there should be any problems. (However, I can be wrong.  ;D)
