I have to admit that I have not had any problems with and I have 
hit it pretty hard. In real-load tests with around 100 concurrent 
connections from an ASP.NET server ticking over at around 12 connections 
per second on average, ODBC pooling on, with a good mix of 
selects/update/inserts it has not hung at all.

How do you know that it is the ODBC driver itself that is hanging the 
web app?
