Emerald does that in one of two cases:

1) You have debug mode on.

2) An SQL Statement failed.

The first is a result of you having debug mode on when you shouldn't. :)
Debug mode should NOT be used unless you are haveing a problem and
wants to get more information about it.

The second allows someone to see what the last SQL Statement was during
a failure (you can go plug it into isql_w and see the full problem).
I'll look into adding an option for the second one that is by default
