Error description

  • Executing an SQL statement using a remote server's dbservername,
    followed by running SQL statements against the same remote
    server's group name causes a memory leak each time the group
    name is used.
    
    Example:
    
    sqlhosts file:
    g_group1    group       -        -            i=1
    server1     onsoctcp    serv1    serv1_port   g=g_group1
    
    g_group2    group       -        -            i=2
    server2     onsoctcp    serv2    serv2_port   g=g_group2
    
    Connect to server1 in dbaccess and run the following sequence of
    statements:
    
    select * from dbname@server2:tabname;
    select * from dbname@g_group2:tabname:  -- this leaks memory
    every time it is executed
