That's my good ole exception handler at work.  :)  I knew there would be 
some kind of problem.  I'm thinking that each server out there may point 
it's "current" directory at the cgi-bin directory or the html directory, so 
I'm going to try using a full pathname to the database file using cgi-bin's 
environment variables.  Try again later.
