I'm pretty sure that this is an ADO thing.  I saw it when I was working with 
ADO clients and the developers confirmed it.

It's commonly used for 'scrollable' cursors with ADO (I think also ADO.Net but 
can't recall). It may be an artifact of the MS Oracle ODBC driver from memory.

I have an application that everyone swears no changes

end of the select clause of each SQL statement.

The application code does not appear to be doing this.
It runs through ODBC. The database does not appear to
be doing this.

Has anyone seen anything like this before?
