Summary: Dollar quoting and '?' in string cause unexpected error.

Initial Comment:
Trying a command like the following one on VB5:
     CurrentConnection.Execute "update mytable set myfield=$_$?$_$;", lAffected

I got this error:
The # of binded parameters < the # of parameter markers

The error seems caused by a '?' anywhere in the string, when using dollar quoting. If I escape the '?', like:
     CurrentConnection.Execute "update mytable set myfield=$_$\?$_$;", lAffected

the command works, but the field in the table will contain '\?'.

I'm using psqlodbc-08_01_0102 on a Windows 2003 server, with postgresql 8.0.3 on  a Ubuntu Linux box.

Bug closed - this is not a bug, but unsupported use of the driver.

psqlODBC driver doesn't support dollar quoting yet.
'?' is character for binding parameters so this is the core of the problem.

I don't know when someone write support for this feature.
