I did the trick by simple closing the dial-up connection to the net. You
probably have access to the target computer but there's nothing "watching
your requests" in the gds_db port, this may make a difference.

This is a flaw in the engine, IMHO. Almost every error you get is documented
in Win32, you can get the description. If anything is reported as unknown,
it should be due to some bad assumption the engine makes. Win32 knows the
text (explanation) of those errors.

No, it took a couple of seconds to fail in my case. I used only the
command-line isql program.
