[Mono-list] ODBC & Mono 2.0? Mine broke.

Hello Gert,

thanks for the link to the tags in svn. I was not sure how to know the tags,
but it now makes sense.
Yes, I can build from source on Linux.
I have built mono 2.0 with a patch to the mono 1.9.1 revision 100770 of
mono-2.0/mcs/class/System.Data/System.Data.Odbc, but it did not help.
I then also built it additionally with revision 99832 of
mono-2.0/mcs/class/System.Data/System.Data, and this also did not help.
Still strange errors when running ODBC commands.

I then installed a clean mono 2.0, and just replaced the System.Data.dll in
the gac with the System.Data.dll from 1.9.1.
This resolved most issues, only my original problem with Progress "number of
open cursors exceeding limit" still remained. I am wondering if that is
connected to some changes in Garbage collection in mono 2.0.

We have now decided to stay with Mono 1.9.1 for the moment, and we are
working to get away from the Progress database anyways to a standard
PostgreSQL, and this should happen in the next months. So therefore we will
not try to make Mono 2.0 work with Progress over ODBC.

Thanks very much for your help, 
all the best,
