HP Visualize C200 - evil non-standard DVI connector!

So I picked up a PA-RISC workstation at the VCF and it looks like a pretty good deal - however, when preparing to hook it up for testing, I discovered that some evil little troll in the Proprietary Connectors Division had provided the installed video card with some kind of connector that looks exactly like DVI but is slightly wider. I know it's not the DMS-59 high-density connectors that Dell used to use for dual-monitor setups, but I'll be damned if I can find an adapter on eBay with normal search terms. Is there a name for this little bastard? Any idea what to search for to find an adapter?

The Visualize-FX2/4/6 use a VESA EVC connection. It's not proprietary at all!

Thanks! Looks like adapters are available, albeit not cheap; we'll see how this works from there.

There are currently EVC - VGA cable(s) listed on eBay for $20. (I forget if it was one of those auctions with multiple items available for the same price).

Yeah, I've got an adapter en route, so I should be able to get it up and running this weekend, I 'spect.
