I traced through the loading of the libraries.  before I do  SQLConnect 
the odbcpsql library is not accessable.  After I execute SQLConnect the 
odbcpsql library is loaded.

Now when I execute SQLExecDirect() the loader ld-linux.so.2 does a 
string compair with the name SQLExecDirect and the libraries that are 

Because odbcpsql is loaded after odbc library the search finds the 
SQLExecDirect of the odbcpsql before SQLExecDirect in odbc.

This problem only happens under Mozilla.  When I do a standalone test it

Hi, have you any idea why it links directly into odbcpsql, is there any
reason ? Normally you would link to libodbc.so and go from there.
