OK, all of you TOAD users/guru's out there, I've a user who is getting the following error message from TOAD that I can't pin down;

 "Auto Commit is disabled. A session that has pending transactions is about to close."

This happens whenever she looks at a view that is composed entirely of data from a second database. To make matters even more complicated the database that she's connected to is Oracle 10g R1 and the source db is 8.1.7. Now all she is doing is reading the data, no updated, deletes, even cut/paste not being used. Anyone got any idea about what is going on??
