List limitations?

If I connect to server2 alone, it works properly.  If I connect to server2
first, then server 1, server2 works and server1 returns strange characters
for familynames.  I am using mxODBC, at least, as far as  understand it from
the notes I downloaded.

Have you tried connecting just to server2?
What happens if you switch server2 and server1?
Have you considered using mxODBC?
