I recall someone doing this successfully.  The key here is that it needs to
be running on Win95, Win98, or NT.

You do not need this table on the server.  The driver will report it as an
error in the log file, but it should not be a problem to the application.

Activate the CommLog in the driver settings and send a copy of the errant
session.  Its located in C:\psqlodbc*.log.

I would drop the table unless you know what you are doing with MSysConf. At
least until you get on solid footing.   It's improper configuration may
cause other problems.
