> If you follow the MIDAS documentation for setting up password protection, you will get strange messages:
This is interesting. When I used it last time (some years ago...) it worked fine. I did not touch this, and now it's broken. Must be related to some modifications of the semaphore system.
Well, anyhow, the problem seems to me the db_close_all_databses() and the re-opening of the ODB. Apparently the db_close_database() call does not clean up the semaphores properly.
Actually there is absolutely no need to close and re-open the ODB upon a wrong password, so I just removed that code and now it works again.
