I've done quite a lot of DBD::ODBC stuff, and have never seen a Dr
Watson crash before. Seems to be that if you're getting that sort of
crash, you've found a bug in either DBD::ODBC or in the ODBC drivers.
It's rather uncommon for Perl code to cause an actual crash.
Can you narrow things down to one statement that consistently fails?
DBD::ODBC is Win32 specific, I think. At least if you get it from
ActiveState, one would think that it is safe. I've used it on Win32
under MS SQL server and Access, mainly. I've never used it on anything
I've also used Win32::ODBC, but switched in order to be more portable.
