[unixODBC-support] Memory leakage induced on changing development platform

Hi Nick,

Thanks alot for the speedy response.

Was hoping that there would be a known problem and solution.

I'll check out the oracle issues; OCI does look suspicious but I'd rather
not commit to Easysoft as my client will have a fit.

In the meantime I'd appreciate any other thoughts you might have on the

I'll post any additional info but right now I'm in survival mode.

Thanks again,

Couple of things worth trying,

1. Try using 2.3.2pre (the current dev build), I don't know of any leaks
in 2.2.12, but it is some years old now (at least 2008). Or at least a
2.3.1 the current release version.

2. Try a different driver. As you are using the Oracle one it could be
leaking in the driver or the OCI lib, a free trial of the Easysoft WP
driver would at least allow you to see if the leak remains or goes.

As the leak is only on the 64 bit platform, I am moderately confidant
its not the driver manager, as there is no 64/32 bit differences I can
think of when it comes to memory allocation and release.
