OK. My bad. I missed that. I thought you were saying you reverted to 5.5.4
because you couldn't get this working in 6.

It's been a while since I've had to try to open a postgres file, but I never
had problems with it before. I'll try it again tonight.

And just for a sanity check... you're accessing a remote postgres database,
not one on your development machine, right? And it works in the IDE but not
in a standalone running on the same machine as the IDE? (Asking because you
have to explicitly configure postgres to allow access from a remote machine).
