[plt-scheme] schemeQL

Thanks Francisco,

The database is MS-SQL server, v7.0. I don't have access to the machine
right now but the ODBC driver is definitely the latest and greatest (it's a
brand new  installation).

I had no problems making the database connection (although when I got the
ODBC data source name wrong the schemeQL error message was just as cryptic)
but executing any query would fail.

This has come up several times in the past.  With the help of Jon Kre
Hellan, we fixed a bug (when using unixODBC at least), and improve the
error reporting system (Unspecified error is not very informative).

I will release a new .plt package tonight.

This, I'm afraid, won't solve your problem, but it will be more
informative as to what we should be looking for.  In the mean time,
could you tell me what DBMS and ODBC driver are you using?
