Basically, if you're using IFILE in tnsnames.ora, you're entering
uncharted territory - and you won't get a lot of support if it hits the fan.
And there's several conditions, where it won't work - apart from the one
you've already found out, re database links.

That's interesting.  Our new 11i Enterprise Apps installation
seems to use ifile by default in tnsnames.ora.

The name it points to is however nonexistent.
