It appears that if you create an instance name with a "." in it, FDS cannot find
its SSL database.  It may also hurt other functionality.

Two ways to fix this:

1) Fix the overall codebase to allow periods

2) Have 'setup' and the 'new instance' wizard validate the instance name as not
containing periods or any other non-compatible characters.
