He indicated that there was a specific problem with UNC's in his code that
could cause a lock up. Perhaps you could work with him to resolve his UNC
problem (and therefore save yourself the hassle of having to change Emerald
to support a non-UNC compatible Serve-U).

....and tell him he's charging too little for the SQL supported ServeU. He
should be charging $400 instead of $40 and I'd gladly pay it to have the
support and reliability.
