FIX: The setMaxRows method unexpectedly applies to DELETE statements when you use the SQL Server 2005 JDBC Driver version 1.2 to connect to a database

Consider the following scenario. You use the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 JDBC Driver version 1.2 to connect to a database. Then, you use the setMaxRows method to limit the number of rows that are affected by a query. In this scenario, this method unexpectedly applies to DELETE statements.

For example, you use the setMaxRows method to set the maximum number of rows to one. Then, you use a DELETE statement to delete some rows. However, only one row is deleted.

This problem does not occur when you use the SQL Server 2005 JDBC Driver version 1.1.
