Summary0008014: Inconsitency in database name parameter using Register/Unregister Database
DescriptionAccording to the API documentation, `Server_RegisterDatabase` accepts a filename with the extension being optional:

> This assumes that a database with name “DbName” or “DbName.vdb” exists in the “databases” folder of VServer.

> `server.RegisterDatabase( "DbName" )`

This is not true -- at least in the C interface. Trying to register a database without the `.vdb` extension fails with a message about "invalid name". Append the `.vdb` extension and it works.

I cannot verify if the bug only affects the C interface or others as well. Maybe this is intended behavior and just a documentation bug?

`Database_Open` has the same documented behavior and actually works.

There seems to be similar confusion with `Project_NewClient`.
Steps To Reproduce1. Start VServer
2. Create a database called `Db.vdb`
3. Unregister database
4. Connect through C api and attempt to register as below

    // This fails even though there is a "Db.vdb" in SystemCatalog
    Server_RegisterDatabase ( dbServerP, "Db", NULL );
    // This works
    Server_RegisterDatabase ( dbServerP, "Db.vdb", NULL );
TagsNo tags attached.

It also seems like Database_Unregister requires a name without the extension which create an asymmetry between Register and Unregister.
