ODBC Memory Leak

We are using ODBC connection pooling with SQL Server 2000 v5 on Win 2000 v5
sp4.

Each time we get a connection, SQLConnect, we see the memory usage go
up, about 52K. When we return the connection to the pool,
SQLDisconnect, and after the time that the connection remains in pool
expires we see the memory usage drop by about 28K.

Our basic steps for a select are:
SQLAllocHandle( SQL_HANDLE_DBC, hGblEnv, &hdbc);
SQLSetConnectAt tr(hdbc, SQL_ATTR_LOGIN_ TIMEOUT,
(SQLPOINTER)lLo ginTimeOut, 0);
SQLSetConnectAt tr(hdbc, SQL_ATTR_ACCESS _MODE,
(SQLPOINTER)SQL _MODE_READ_ONLY , SQL_IS_POINTER) ;
SQLConnect(hdbc ,(SQLCHAR *)szDatabase, SQL_NTS,
(SQLCHAR *)szUserId, SQL_NTS,
(SQLCHAR *)szPassword, SQL_NTS);
SQLAllocHandle( SQL_HANDLE_STMT , hdbc, &hstmt);
// Build the select statement
SQLExecDirect(h stmt, (SQLCHAR * )pszSQLStmt, strlen(pszSQLSt mt));
SQLFetch(hstmt) ;
SQLFreeHandle (SQL_HANDLE_STM T, hstmt);
SQLDisconnect(h dbc);

Same memory leak occurs in DB2, but that's another forum.

There is a known issue with a memory leak in ODBC, described in
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=814410. This fix is included in SP3a,
but *not* in SP3, so you might want to investigate if this could be
the same.

However, I'm not completely sure that this is the same leak. I did get
a repro for the original leak, which lead to the fix in 814410, but not
programming ODBC much myself, I don't remember the details.

In any case, in case SP3a does not resolve the problem, could you compose
a complete repro that demonstrates the problem? That is a program that
I can compile and run? In such case, I should be able to bring it up
with Microsoft.
