I would also like to know what you mean by a little bit buggy.

Right now, the bugs I'm experiencing with the M$'s implementation are
preventing me from deploying a mission-critical apps. For those of you
familiar with the problem, I'm talking about General Network Errors and
a situation where MS's SqlClient drops the connection when it receives
ACK+RESET bits set on the packet, in the case when the response is
broken into several packets. So far, M$'s response was to set the
CommandTimeout to 7200, which is definitely is a workaround, not a

I would rather use Mono's implementation, because of the managed
TdsClient, rather than M$'s reliance on dbnetlib.

When I tried to compile the latest CVS System.Data under cygwin, it
turned out that I also needed System.Security in addition to Mono.Tds.
Is that also a requirement? I wonder if I should just get the latest
stable DLLs from the Windows installer of Mono? I'd rather use the CVS
version, if I can convince the build scripts to build it for me :)

Thanks in advance.
