wrong values in ODBC parameters?

now my initial problem:

I'm using a commercial application which is crashing while trying to
insert sets into tables (using psqlodbc.dll).

I did some tracing:

It crashes in module convert.c / copy_statement_with_parameters 
in function: 

convert_special_chars(char *si, char *dst, int used)

The access violation appears at:

if (si[i] == '\r' && i+1 < strlen(si) && si[i+1] == '\n')

si = 0x00000001
used = -103

It seems that it runs into an access violation, since 'si' has 
been assigned a wrong value. Also 'used = -103' doesn't
seem to be healthy value. 'dst' seems to be alright.

convert_special_chars was called in

convert_special_chars(buf, &new_statement[npos], used);

'buf' seems to be the same like 'buffer':

So 'used' and 'buffer' where assigned at (in copy_statement_with_parameters):

		/*	Assign correct buffers based on data at exec param or not */
		if ( stmt->parameters[param_number].data_at_exec) {
			used = stmt->parameters[param_number].EXEC_used ? *stmt->parameters[param_number].EXEC_used : SQL_NTS;
			buffer = stmt->parameters[param_number].EXEC_buffer;
		else {
			used = stmt->parameters[param_number].used ? *stmt->parameters[param_number].used : SQL_NTS;
			buffer = stmt->parameters[param_number].buffer;

Well, here my knowledge ends. Something seems to be wrong with the ODBC parameters
supplied by my application, but:

Same application works flawless with MS-SQL-ODBC and ORACLE-ODBC.

So IMHO there must be a problem in psqlodbc.dll. Even though I admit that the buggy 
call might be accepted in MS-ODBC due to another bug. :-)

Could somebody point me in the correct direction? Any hints? Patches?
I really would like to use Postgres for my app.
