[Haskell-cafe] HDBC-odbc with GHC-6.8.2 and Cygwin

Version of the HDBC-odbc package crashes GHCi when I issue:

Prelude> :m +Database.HDBC.ODBC
Prelude Database.HDBC.ODBC> connectODBC ""

I'm using Cygwin and GHC-6.8.2 on a Windows XP machine.  Furthermore, 
using connectODBC with a valid connection string also results in GHCi 
crashing (using GHCi-6.8.2 and HDBC-odbc- -- actually it causes 
GHCi to exit abruptly without an error message.  On GHC-6.6.1, using 
HDBC-odbc-, connectionODBC "" produces an uncaught exception 
without crashing GHCi.

Any suggests for getting the package up and running on GHC-6.8.2?
