Some other parts of libtds have Win32-specific logic, but this one
doesn't.  If you feel like experimenting, you might try calling
WSAGetLastError to get the real error code.  I don't see anything like
"WSAperror()", though, so I guess you'll have to grep the winsocket
header files to find its name.  Maybe that will be a clue.
