Quick search about "eafnosupport" (which, as can be read from this
error log, is the error "code") reveals:

"This is an error you get when you try to connect(2) or bind(2) a
socket to an address where that address doesn't make sense. "


"Either way the programmer screwed up."

So it may be bug in ODBC or i are using it in a wrong way :)
