After the update, every time I'd start Emerald, I would get an ODBC Logon
box with places to type DSN, UID, Database, Server, Driver and so on. After

appeared with the name of one of my regions. After clicking OK again, the
name of another region appeared. This continued until I cycled through all

this behavior remained a constant, so I went back to 2.5.287.
