[unixODBC-support] field name length

I just managed to bring up a connection to an Oracle database, running 
on a Windows server, from my Linux workstation with unixODBC. Wasn't 
that easy to tweak everything right to work and now after all it seems 
function odbc_result fails with 'field not found' if fieldnames are more 
than 15 characters. I don't have this problem with Windows clients and I 
don't like the idea to change all the fieldnames in the db. Is this 
probably configurable anywhere? Does anyone else run in similar trouble? 
Any hints are welcome...
