The prePreOpenstack is sent from openstack of the mainstack.  And again,
the code has worked for years on the mac.

I think I have it nailed down, and it's ugly.

I moved the stack over to one of my daughter's Macbook Airs.

Even though I had toggled the database settings several times, including
the specific drivers, they still showed postgres and sqlite to be built on

However, when I opened on the Mac, without any editing, sqlite was *not*

I compiled a windows version on *that* machine, ran it on XP, and it could
open the database.

I brought the mac-saved file back to XP, compiled again, and it again
didn't work.

This is an *ugly* windows-side bug.
