#87: ogr2ogr: issue with filename of Pgeo type

 It seems that ogr2ogr (v 1.5.4-2) does not accept filenames of personal
 geodatabases with short filenames, or containing numbers in the filename..

 a) here is the error:
 ERROR 1: Unable to initialize ODBC connection to DSN for cipaaaa1,
 [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default
 r specified
 Unable to open datasource `Pgeo:cipaaaa1' with the following drivers.

 b) I did some tests...it seem the issue related to MDB files..

 - with file names less than 3 characters in length
 - with file names containing a number (any length)..

 a.mdb fail
 ab.mdb fail
 abc.mdb OK
 a1.mdb fail
 abc1.mdb fail
 abcedfg1.mdb fail

 ...clearly: I can't say if this is an exhaustive set of tests, but I hope
 it can help

 the issue can be bypassed by renaming the MDB file, so I am giving this a
 minor priority
