I'm having a problem with the database access functionality.
If I do:
*Main> do info <- dbGetDataSourceInfo "mysql" "root" "root"; print info
I get:

*** Exception: user error (Database error: DbError {dbErrorMsg = "", dbDataSource = "mysql", dbErrorCode = DB_FAILURE, dbNativeCode = 0, dbSqlState = ""})
I have an excel datasource which returns the same error.
I can access the same MySQL ODBC datasource with the same userid and password using Ruby. I'm using 0.8.
