[unixODBC-support] Named Driver vs full path for Driver

If the section entry for a DSN in an odbc.ini file uses a full path
for the Driver entry, will any of the content of odbcinst.ini be used?


Suppose the I have the following:

odbc.ini
======================
[DsnDriverPath]
Description=Use a full path for the driver
Driver=/usr/local/somedb/lib/libodbc.so
Server=test
User=test
{...etc...}

[DsnDriverNamed]
Description=Use a named driver
Driver=SomeDB
Server=test
User=test
{...etc...}
======================



odbcinst.ini
======================
[SomeDB]
Driver=/usr/local/somedb/lib/libodbc.so
Threading=0
=======================



Will both DsnDriverPath and DsnDriverName "see" the Threading=0 in the
odbcinst.ini?   Or will only the DsnDriverNamed "see" the Threading=0?


Thanks,
