If you're using SQL as your db back-end, was it started before Serv-U was
started? If the Serv-U service runs before SQL is finished loading, you'll
get authentication problems until you stop/restart Serv-U.

Also, if you're using an older version of the dll file, the user won't be
able to authenticate past his/her expiration date (regardless of whatever
grace-period is set (MasterAccounts.OverDue)) unless a value is entered in
for the MasterAccounts.Extension (temporary extension). The .dll file from
December 97 fixes this glitch and now recognizes both the grace period and
temp extension.
