Hi Kurt,

I had a problem when i was using a database link between 8.1.7 and 9iR2 - I
had couple of procedures and insert statements in the procs - when i was
inserting oracle used to give me a strange problem, it also used to hang
many times. Then i came to know that it was a problem with recursive SQL. I
upgraded the remote DB to 9iR2 and since then i have'nt faced any suh
problems till date.

I suppose you should not get any prob between and - no idea
of dlink between and
