I agree with Bert here on your test method.

I think it is, there were however some reports of a memory leak in the ODBC backend, but I'm sure the new Generic 
ODBC backend doesn't leak (I payed extra attention to that when writing it from scratch).

The Windows version hasn't been tested very thoroughly though. Partly because of lack of time on my side and partly 
because the lack of usage reports from people who are using it.

If you want stability, go with the linux version. If you want a stable Windows version then test it and send complete 
reports of problems you might encounter to this list.
