[freetds] FreeTDS, unixODBC, and libodbc++

Ok, now that I have unixODBC working, I'm having trouble with libodbc++.  Right now I am trying to run a very simply query (select one column from a table).  My program catches this exception:
Error setting pointer statement option: [unixODBC][Driver Manager]Invalid attribute/option identifier

Here is the last few lines of my tdsdump file:
2003-06-12 12:19:46.791094 processing result tokens.  marker is  a0(COLNAME)
2003-06-12 12:19:46.791159 processing result tokens.  marker is  a1(COLFMT)
2003-06-12 12:19:46.791213 processing result. type = 56(int), varint_size 0
odbc:SQLColAttributes: fDescType is 1
SQLColAttributes: copying 6 bytes, len = 6, cbDescMax = 255
odbc:SQLColAttributes: fDescType is 2
odbc:SQLColAttributes: colinfo->column_type = 56, colinfo->column_size = 4, *pfDesc = 4
odbc:SQLColAttributes: fDescType is 4
odbc:SQLColAttributes: fDescType is 5
odbc:SQLColAttributes: fDescType 5 not catered for...
odbc:SQLColAttributes: fDescType is 3

I'm not sure if this means anything.  What I am wondering is, is this an issue with freetds, unixodbc, or libodbc++ (or all of them, or none??)?  Has anyone actually written a c++ application usually a similar driver/driver manager setup?  Am I going to have to go back to writing C code with those nasty ODBC functions?  Thanks for any info.
