Often when I am disconnecting from the oracle server, I am presented with some puzzling dialogs. First I am asked if I want to cancel queries that are currently running, which is strange because from my point of view, no queries are running. If I answer yes, then I get a dialog about automatically reconnecting. If I answer “No”, then the dialog goes away and nothing else happens. I only have a screenshot of the first dialog. When I see the second one again, I’ll post it if anyone thinks it is necessary.
So, is this expected behavior? Why does Toad think there is a query running even when there is not. It may have been several minutes since the last query I ran had completed (for instance, something as simple as select sysdate from dual). And why would it try to reconnect when I manually attempted to disconnect it?
I am not using ODBC or direct connect.
