Ok, so its got through unixODBC to the driver and the driver is 
reporting that it failed to connect.

I would check the ini file entries. I would also try setting

export ODBCINI=/etc/odbc.ini

it may be that the driver is reading the ini file itself and is not sure 
which one to read.

No, LO uses the ODBC API, isql is just a simple app that makes ODBC calls.
