I tried connecting to a Valentina database using the query builder and that
crashed RunRev. All I did was point to it with "Host" using the "for SQLite
database only pointer tool" and then chose Valentina2 -- instant repeatable
crash every time. Since there are no instructions how to fill out this
window I think it should at least be crash proof for trial and error people
like me.
