I had a similar problem on Windows 2003 Server today. I
got "Unavailable database" for just about everything I tried. I
happened onto this thread and tried adding localhost: anywhere I
specified a path and it did indeed work.

So...WHY??? What problem am I actually working around? This is the
only machine I've ever had to do this on.
