Hi Heikki -

I think I should be able to put together a simple test class that
demonstrates the behavior, that is, assuming the problem is in fact with
the code in question.  

In any case, after I got home yesterday I tried to implement a pool
using a BasicDataSource object instead of what I was doing with the
PoolingDriver, and I haven't run into any problems at all with that. 
I'm able to open new connections until all available are full, at which
point it blocks until one is freed, just like I'd expect it to do.

Still using J2SE 1.6 with Postgre's jdbc4 drivers.  go figure.

Do you still want me to post an example class that demonstrates the bug?
 I don't need a solution any more personally, but if you want to find
the bug for bug-squashing's sake, I can throw one together and post it
in the near-term.

take care, and thanks to all for the quick replies -

Matt
