For me, I've had to freeze my systems at version 2.2.11, as later versions always die with 'segmentation fault', for no apparent reason when using via perl DBD::ODBC.

Now, I connect to MSSQL, but this could be the same problem?

Can someone close to the code confirm that this property is new in later versions, is clearly and loudly documented, and that lacking configuration for it would obviously cause a segfault on any installation? 

(It's not trivial for me to test ATM, but I'd try to upgrade if there was some confirmation this is, in fact, an obvious problem.)
