[gdal-dev] Issue with ogrinfo: unixODBC and MS SQL

Hey guys. I posted a few days ago about a problem with using ogrinfo to 
read ODBC from a MS SQL server.

$ ogrinfo test.ovf
ERROR 1: No column definitions found for table 
'�o��y.����y', layer not usable.
(... and so on, more binary table names ...)

I can connect to the ODBC/MSSQL using the isql program, but not ogrinfo. 
I can render ODBC layers if their server is PostgreSQL or MySQL. Just 
not ogrinfo and MS SQL.

Any advice on how I can proceed with troubleshooting this?
