in thread 'use database' for sqlserver

I use $dbh->do("use $database"); ('$database' is sufficiently trusted in my env, YMMV). Putting the database into the connect string, at least for DBD::Sybase (I don't know about DBD::ODBC), resulted in a warning when I really wanted it to throw an error, e.g., when the server was up, but the database was not 'ready'. The do(..) method throws an error if RaiseError is set.
