I'd personally consider this a defect.  I wouldn't be surprised if somehow
the ampersand in the password isn't getting escaped properly somewhere in
the XML, but that's just a WAG.  Even if it's not something that can be
fixed (odbc limitation?), a better error description would be good.  Google
definitely isn't a help, but at least your blog post comes up near the

Bob&Doug?  Take off eh! :)
