I changed the driver to handle this a little better.

- text was already SQL_LONGVARCHAR.
- name is now SQL_CHAR (fixed at 32) - it should have been this all along
- varchar and bpchar both return SQL_VARCHAR, BUT varchar now comes first,
since it is most correct anyway, I think that makes sense.

Hope this helps.

The latest stuff is at our web site.
