Invalid class connectors can make session unusable

Invalid class connectors can cause login failures. Upon login, if GemBuilder finds a class connector for which it cannot successfully connect, the user is presented with a dialog asking the user if he or she would like to remove the invalid connector. If the user chooses to say 'No', subsequent openings of the GemStone classes browser will attempt to use that invalid connector and cause errors. It is possible that even if the user chooses 'Yes', errors could occur if the the invalid connector was encountered inside of a flush to the server.

Workaround

If you encounter a failed connector, select 'Yes' to remove the connector, then logout and log back in. If you wish to keep that connector, resolve the failure before opening the class browser.
