Zoltan changed the driver because nobody else did it. As I recall, we asked this
list to correct the driver to work correctly with 7.0 pre releases with RI, but
we received no answers. We tried to correct the problem for ouselves. It worked.
But later we were asked to share the patch. Lastly it used to commit the main
CVS by sombody else but we asked this list again to werify the modifycatons by
sombody knowing something about ODBC and the current driver.

I think it should be corrected. But if I rmember correctly, the patch was for
report RI violatoions to the app, and these errors comes as NOTICEs not ERRORs.
May I wrong? Is it the case now?

We still use the old patched driver. (It says "(non fatal)" error this case in
the error message - may the shared patch says it too.)

In addition later we encountered the same problem as you... And Zoltan made his
second patch, against the backend to do not drop other NOTICE-s :-) And it works
fine too... :-)) Is somebody interested in? :-)))
