0.9.4 Test 1 is a pretty old version, so maybe try a newer version,
like RC1 and see if you still have a problem. You might want to
post a lot more information, for example if your using a server, then
what is the server O/S, are you running the same version of the
client? What is the client O/S? Is the database dialect 1 or 3?
