I am a GIS Analyst with a background in archaeology, computer science and general electronic tinkering. I generally know enough to get in way over my head and then work my way back out.

comment using the “freehand” construction tool
That's a good one too - I really like using undo because you don't have to click anywhere. If you just screw up and click in totally the wrong spot you can just hit ctrl-z and carry on.

comment Are database client files platform specific?
So, are the files specific to QGIS and ArcGIS? Or is it just a matter of making a copy of the set in the ArcGIS folder so they are available to ESRI products as well?

comment Search cursor stops selecting after two iterations
I would recommend throwing in a handful of print statements that will show you the values of your variables for filenames and paths. It's inelegant and pretty much a brute-force technique but I've often found it the fastest way to debug arcpy scripts. I would recommend using arcpy.GetCount_management() to show how many records are being recognized in your layer, a counter to show how many times you're going through the for loop, and an output of all your filename/path variables. Then run the script and dig through all the output when it quits. You may find the culprit somewhere in there.

Have you checked to make sure that no records are selected in grid_lyr when you start the script? If anything is selected when you get going ONLY those records will show up in the cursor.
