I admit it wasn't a proper report, as I was not aware of DCL at the time. It 
just was a glitch with createResultSet(), as it quoted numbers, pgsql is 
happy with that, but MS Access (via ODBC) isn't. 

I just looked again and found two another messages with bugs (in an Oct 2003 
CVS version) and some other stuff. I just sent all of it to you, I hope you 
find this useful.

As long as the way you do a lot of common tasks is not at reach of most 
people, the developer efforts are useless. You can learn a game or some 
another stuff without docs, but for a development tool it is crucial.

I feel the big wave of mails in the last days is a sign of the image and 
situation of GNUe. Most people waiting for a useful project, and even willing 
to collaborate, just to be disappointed mostly because lack of feedback. I 
remember a couple of month with just a few questions from newcomers, that 
weren't answered by anyone. I hope I can change my perceptions, as I really 
wish a bright future to GNUe.
