Currently CVS HEAD seems to handle all situations correctly.

First send cancel than it wait for cancel handling by server. So others
SQLCancel just do nothing.

??? it calls cancellation.

cancellation is supported even by protocol 4.2.

See odbc cancel test. I use alarm to emulate ctrl-c

The bad thing... it seems that if test is executed using unixODBC it
fails. Our SQLCancel is not called (that is you call SQLCancel and
unixODBC do not call driver one... it hangs). I use unixODBC 2.2.11,
I'll test with 2.2.12
