Hi,
I have encountered following problem:
Firebird db is running on the windows server.

the connection string is following:

db_filename = 'd|\\sgdata\\test\\sysdat01.gdb'
connection_string = 'firebird://winsrv.xxx.xx:3050/' + db_filename
connection = connectionForURI(connection_string)

From the windows machine as a client everything works fine.

From the linux machine as a client:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "romana_Import_01.py", line 65, in <module>
    jenKdyzText()
  File "romana_Import_01.py", line 49, in jenKdyzText

It looks like a SQLObject parsing is dooing something wrong and windows server can not recognize the name of the database file.
