Looking at the log, I see what you mean about the odbc behavior stuff.  But,
when a connect attempt fails, if its because the connection could not be
physically made OR the authentication is wrong, the driver will return an error
from SQLDriverConnect.   So it seems to working as designed, even with the
warning message in the log.

The only time the driver will prompt the user is if a password is required to
connect, and one was not provided.

In order to do what you say, I would need to examine the error message that
comes back.  If its an authentication related problem, then prompt the user
with a dialog box.
