OK, good to know. In the meanwhile I upgraded to 7.3.1, so 1) and 2) are OK.

Definitely serious, took me a long time to find out, why two machines hat to be
hard rebooted because they ran out of memory after some weeks running with no
problems. Changed the "connect/disconnect when idle" strategy to "connect at
startup and stay so".
If I'd track down the problem and sent a patch, has the wheel to be reinvented
for gborg ? Two concurrent developments is not a good thing.
Oops, forgot to check that thread. Thanks for your response.
