stay on the version you are at then you need to do what I recommended with
the array property of transactions for the session and run a check to see
what all transactions are staying open.
Look at the transaction Pausing tutorial application to get an idea of how
this can be done.
Hopefully that version of IBO will have it. You are getting about 2 years
old in your code there. IBO has matured significantly from that time.

would only take one transaction hung up to cause it, not many hung up.
If you have a lot of queries in your application then you need to take
explicit control of things.
An easy way to alleviate this is to use the TIBODatabase component which
provides a single default transaction for all the queries and datasets
attached to it. You will also want to take advantage of the transaction
TimeoutProps property which allows you to take control of it even better.
