I have been having the same (or similar) problem with HDBC and 
SQL Server. I have no problem using HDBC and SQLite on Windows, 
and also have no problems with perl's DBI and DBD::ODBC 
connecting to the SQL Server database with the same DSN.

But I don't know where to point the finger, and I don't know what 
to do next. It does seem strange that there is no error message 
when ghci crashes.
