O.k., I did that. I'm running OpenOffice-1.1.1 on SuSE-8.2 with
unixODBC-2.2.3 provided by the distribution. I log into a database
server 'gluehbirne' (Sybase- ESD#6) with a database 'MasTest'
as the user 'mas'. 'mas' is owner of the database and the database is
the default database for 'mas' - no excuses at this point  ;-)

Login is done via OpenOffice's 'data source administration' window,
after this is finished successfully I try to browse the tables via the
'view data sources' menu ('F4'). I attached a small archive file
containing the logs generated at the login process and the tables
browsing (which does not result in _any_ table name being listed).

In the hope that these logs are of at least little use ...."

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
