Database connection fails using community server 6.0.2

Hi Mike,

I've been trying to just use the revOpenDatabase to connect to
a local postgresql database and keep getting the error:

Function: error in function handler (revOpenDatabase)

I'm assuming this error is due to the problem you 
are describing. I'm using the Server Commercial version < 6.0.2
if that helps at all. 

When can we expect an update to fix these database problems?
This is getting critical for me.

If the fix isn't going to be soon, can you please give us
more explicit instructions as to how we can work around these
