You could try the perl-win32-users mailing list hosted by ActiveState. You
need to subscribe to post. See:

There might even be something in that lists's archive. I'm subscribed there,
and I don't recall seeing anything about this, but I tend to ignore anything
that's DBI related (as I don't use it myself).
