Weird, using mxDateTime on the server (linux) seems to cause a security
look-up. I get a login box and the error "strftime not allowed to be used
in this context". I have to use mxDateTime on Windows but it seems the DA
forgets this regularly as I get the IOError from DateTime.py and then have
to close and reopen the DA :-( at which point the error goes away.
