I had a problem with oracle segfaulting, but I was able to fix it.  I
rebuilt the oracle client library with the genclntsh script in the oracle
bin directory, but I linked the new client library to the pth pthread
emulation library instead of the glibc pthread library.  It seems that the
oracle client's use of pthreads doesn't play nice with pth, so you'll have
to use the emulation library.  This works fine as far as I can tell.

Dear Sir,

The segfault in Oracle: are you 100% sure that you have checked the SQL
schema for foreign keys?

The thing is that  xdb_sql data model is 100% correct with the right
foreign keys and constraints, however when the SQL fires off an error,
xdb_sql does not know how to handle the error or so it seems and thus it
crashes the jabberd since it is dynamically linked to this process...

I had this problem using PostgreSQL and undoing the foreignkeys => no more
constraints, solved the problem. However then I have to be more MySQL'ish
in my data validation.

That means less lazyness => less time for coffee :-(

best regards, nino
