Prepared statements (server) return no results, client statements work

We have a C application using ODBC drivers to communicate with a Linux MySQL installation. When SQLExecDirect running a "select * from "USERS" where ("USER" = ?) ; statement with a bound variable string with a value of "MANAGER" the subsequent SQLFetch returns SQL_NO_DATA.
However, switching the "Prepare statements on the client" ON in the driver results in a single row being returned.
Packet monitoring on the Linux box shows that the request is correctly sent in both cases. It shows the first case preparing/responding/executing/responding as expected. In the second case is shows the pre-substituted statement being executed and responding with the same result.

One minor difference between the two executions is that the response to the server side execution is two bytes longer. Wiresahark does report "EOF Marker found while connection in wrong state." Which may or may not have something to do with the client not interpreting the result. I have found little documentation on "client_deprecate_eof" setting which apparently may have an impact. Neither is there any great deal of documentation as to why/when "Prepare statements on the client" should be used.

Any pointers / further investigation areas would be greatly appreciated.
