d not open file: C:\Windows\system32\Directory\MonetDB\mydb

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

here is a simple script that works in 1.0.0 and breaks in 1.0.1


batfile <-
monetdb.server.setup( = "C:/My Directory/MonetDB" ,

	monetdb.program.path = 
			.Platform$OS.type == "windows" , 
			"C:/Program Files/MonetDB/MonetDB5" , 
		) ,

	dbname = "mydb" ,
	dbport = 50000


dbname <- "mydb"
dbport <- 50000
pid <- monetdb.server.start( batfile )
monet.url <- paste0( "monetdb://localhost:" , dbport , "/" , dbname )
db <- dbConnect( MonetDB.R() , monet.url , wait = TRUE )

Server not ready(Authentication error: !request for database 'mydb', but this is database 'My', did you mean to connect to monetdbd instead?), retrying (ESC or CTRL+C to abort)

Actual Results:

database launch fails, MonetDB.R no longer works standalone
