cursor select/delete where current of not working

I just inherited support of this app so bear with me. The scenario: Oracle
9i replicated databases, same C++ server process runs on both boxes. On a 15
minute schedule, the server that is primary deletes records out of a lock
table based on age. Once a week, the primary box is rebooted and clients are
redirected to the secondary. Once the boot is complete, the primary box
continues to handle record cleanup although clients stay pointed to the
secondary. The next night, the secondary bounces and clients move back to

The problem that I have is that some (and only some) records that are
inserted by the secondary server are never cleaned up by the primary even
though the primary server logs the existence of these records when they
first age & the fact that a delete was executed. Further, despite the fact
that a command line sqlplus select displays them days later, the primary
server never logs their occurrence again. It is as if once the delete is
executed, they are no longer returned in the select to the server process.
This condition spans reboots such that the primary fails to recognize
records that are several weeks old. Hundreds of records are properly cleaned
each week but those that are not are always generated from the secondary
server. No errors are logged to indicate a problem.

At first blush, the answer is simple: broken code. But a code review could
not find any cause for this behavior. See code below:
<start of pseudo-code>

//agebuf set to '0 00:15:00'
exec sql at :instancename declare c cursor for
select * from lock_tbl where lock_timestamp at local <
(localtimestamp - to_dsinterval(: agebuf));
if (sqlca.sqlcode != 0) {

Dear all, To DELETE rows in a EEE context (AIX 5.1 / V7.2 FP11 or V8.1 FP5), I have used a CLI program and a shell that runs on each partition. What I am surprised is about the slowness of this CLI program. Basically, to delete about 7 million rows, it's going to take 7 times a single DELETE FROM TABLE statement. Do you have any advise or is this a normal behaviour ?

Does Me.Cursor.Current=Cursors.WaitCursor set the current property of Me.Cursor to Cursors.WaitCursor And Me.Cursor.Current=Cursors.Default set the Me.Current property to something (default) stored in Me.Cursor. Or is Cursors.Default some process wide cursor shape? What is a correct statement?

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
