if you want to see any improvement in this backend, I strongly suggest you
test HEAD code (or at least 2.2.latest, which is almost the same).

I don't have access to that kind of system (any of the above) so if
there's any portability issue, it's very unlikely I can be of any help.

I'll blindly review those examples, but, as I said before, there's very
little I can do to test them.  Maybe you can try with postgres or mysql,
to provide some baseline testing we can share to work out some of the

there is tons of possible causes; if you (and I :) have time, we can try
some of the steps one by one, and you can post some info (e.g.debug output
with -d -1)

I haven't tried it for a while, I'll check.  But I repeat, let's work with
HEAD or 2.2.latest; 2.1 will be soon historical...

I'd rather leave timesten experimental; I haven't ever tested it, and
yours is the first (negative) report I see, so I definitely agree it's
experimental.  On the contrary, I have some evidence of success with
postgres, mysql and mssql.

If there's any specific issue (of the above, including all) that you want
to be seriously tracked, please file an ITS.
