ODBC source fails > FM gets stuck

Dear all,


Filemaker works perfect and keeps data between MySQL online and FM local in sync. With help of a ODBC connector from http://www.actualtech.com


But when the server at the other end of the ODBC connection drops, there is no graceful disconnection. No warning. FM doesn't crash, just goes into a unlimited loop.. but even when the online server is back alive again, FM will remain in a coma. It will even prevent to quit FM. Only option is to disconnect it from the server window, and restart.
