Wait, *that* did it? Huh...that shouldn't be necessary; we've been able to
update our own /etc/odbc.ini without running odbcinst again. I'd guess
there was some hard-to-see formatting problem in /etc/odbcinst.ini like
Mike said, and running odbcinst again fixed it.

No problem! I'd call that heroic debugging though, not a mistake, since I
never would have thought running odbcinst would help. I like that
one-liner, too: using /etc/odbc.ini as its own template is a pretty clever
way to make sure the config is tidied up.
