This is for SQLObject 0.6.1 (and 0.6).
In the _parseURI method of the DBConnection class on
line 95 a path to the database is built by taking the
content of the variable "rest" and prepending a slash.
On win32 a connection URI like this:
ends up with this path:
which leads to an error.
Also this makes it impossible to use Firebird database
aliases on win32 as well as on other systems:
which again doesn't work.
For my system removing the line works pretty well, but I
guess it is there for a reason, so a somewhat more
sophisticated solution is needed.
