A virus scanner interfering with file writes is certainly a
possibility, but in my case it's definitely not the answer.
Protel99SE trashes the ini file (gets an exception error while
writing the ini files, actually) on program exit with any ddb
still open. This happens fairly predictably,  about 50% of the
time. It's consistent across multiple PC's and locations -- my PC
designer's system does the same thing. It happens in Windows 2000
or Win98 too.

I've tried disabling my virus scanner and even uninstalling it
completely. I've had it happen on fresh installs of Protel with
"virgin" ini files. There's definitely a problem with Protel
somewhere. No other software on my system exhibits such odd
behaviour.

Moral of the story: Always shutdown all ddb's first, before
exiting Protel.
