Have you tried other options? There are both a .NET driver and an OleDB 
provider, though can only attest to the second.

OLE DB is nearing the point where it should be quite usable for server 
use. The .NET provider has been around even longer, so may be even 
better. In any case, the OLE infrastructure prevents threading problems 
(the hard way, unfortunately), and PgOleDb uses libpq for actual 
database communication.
