Pending seeing an actual stack trace, it's still a very good bet that this
is yet another broken ODBC driver.

I say that because I have numerous reports of the plugin working reliably
on other versions of ODBC driver manager and driver, and that tells me
it's unlikely to be a bug in the plugin.

That said, it's not news that ODBC on Unix, well, blows. This is probably
not the practical solution we need in the end, so while I'm preparing the
list of potential future work items for the community to evaluate, I'd
better put "something else for clustering" on the list.
