Help with database locked. (/tmp/mysql.sock is bad) (Andre Garzia)

Something similar happened to me. Lock messages and open the stack using
message box then make a button with this in it:

 revSetSQLOfQuery "Connect",tSQLStatement

And set the sql statement to something simple and innocuous and the
"connect" should be the name of your query that starts when the card opens.
If you try to open the menu command for the database query builder it will
just lock up again (at least that is how it went with me). The other queries
that aren't set to automatically connect should be no problem. I also got
connection errors right before it locked-up (and it locks up in a weird way
like it is still trying to open the stack and it will allow you to do key
board commands but nothing with mouse).

-- but I imagine that by now you probably fixed this some other way. There
must be some way to open the database query builder without setting lock
messages back to true and running a query.
