[thelist] MS's Latest Patches Problem

I installed MS's latest patch today.  It was an update called  Security
Update for Microsoft Data Access Components (823718).  After the install
(and this may be a coincidence) any attempts to access the SQL Server on the
local machine using the Server name "LOCALHOST" began to fail.  I had to go
through all the code and update the connection strings to use the machine's
name instead.

May be a coincidence... maybe not.  But thought you'd want to know anyway.
