Database access in revlet?

Well, as often happens, the act of posting about my problem triggered
an idea of something I had forgotten to check. It turns out that I
forgot I was doing some fancy shell calls to make sure the database
port was open before trying to connect to the db. Works just fine as
a standalone, but the plugin rightly refuses access to shell calls
unless you ask for permission. I had set it to auto-detect, and it
didn't catch the shell call. At any rate, I just commented out the
calls and it worked like a charm.
Going home for the weekend. My head hurts.
