Setting workspace to SDE feature dataset

I have a python add-in that successfully edits data in a file .gdb (with or without invoking the editor in the script), but I can't edit data in an SDE feature dataset.  I can edit the SDE data (9.3) manually in ArcMap, and the add-in successfully interacts with the SDE data using search cursors.  SP1 is installed.  Any suggestions about what might be causing the error in response to this code?

workspace = r"Database Connections\GDB_HMSDEV.sde\GDB_HMSDEV.HMSADMIN.KerrySandbox" edit = arcpy.da.Editor(workspace)


Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "C:\Users\kalley\AppData\Local\ESRI\Desktop10.1\AssemblyCache\{87D25F75-9A62-5BC9-A006-4B496936EC0F}\ShieldToolTest_addin.py", line 79, in onLine
    edit = arcpy.da.Editor(workspace)
RuntimeError: cannot open workspace

I can provide the full code if necessary...just wanted to keep it simple first.
