We had to switch back to .NET web services because of this bug. The SQL
Server adapter isn't maintained very well.
I'm sorry you feel that way. Storing binary data in the db simply
isn't a priority for me, so I've not really looked at this issue.
In any case, without any way to stream binary data to/from the
database, storing anything other than very small pieces of binary data
will be inefficient. Even without proper binary support, you could
always Base64 encode/decode any data you have.
I do hope this gets fixed.
While there are some reports with suggested fixes, I don't believe
anyone has submitted a tested patch. If I'm mistaken, or if you can
provide one, I will take a look at it (assign it to tomafro).
However, I don't have commit rights to the repository so all I can do
is suggest any patch gets applied (I'm not moaning though - Jeremy is
usually great at doing this promptly).
