ORA-24334: no descriptor for this position

My platform is
Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition
Oracle9i Enterprise Edition Release - Production

I'm using Oracle Objects for OLE, version 11.1

On the MFC client:

oraPar.Add("pub_xx", idp, OPARAMETER_INVAR, OTYPE_NUMBER); OParameter mP = oraPar.Add("retCur", "", OPARAMETER_INOUTVAR, OTYPE_CURSOR);
OSqlStmt stmt(*pArg->pODB, "begin

On the server:

procedure get_prod_info (

   vpub_xx in spacer_pub.xx%type,
   vrefCur out sr.refCur
) as

   vroot_xx spacer_pub.xx%type;
   vparent_xx spacer_pub.xx%type;
   vcid_xx cid_info.xx%type := null;

   vroot_xx := vpub_xx;

   while vroot_xx is not null and vcid_xx is null loop

      select decode(p.powtorka,null,p.cid_xx,null),
        (select min(p2.xx) from spacer_pub p2,makieta m
         where p.powtorka is not null and p2.mak_xx=m.xx and
                   m.kiedy=sr.powtseed+p.powtorka and 
      into vcid_xx,vparent_xx from spacer_pub p where p.xx=vroot_xx;

      vroot_xx := vparent_xx;

   end loop;

   open vrefCur for

       select bbox,kolor from cid_info where xx=nvl(vcid_xx,-1); exception

   when others then

      open vrefCur for select 1 from dual where 0=1; end get_prod_info;

This works fine in single threaded application. When I'm using several thread serialized on database client level (oo4o initialized by OStartup(OSTARTUP_APARTMENTTHREADED);) it throws:
Error in SQL statement, ORA-24334: no descriptor for this position or
Error fetching data, ORA-24334: no descriptor for this position or sometimes:
Error fetching data, ORA-01403: no data found

It happens one time per 1000 calls on average, but the application is business critical and it can't go this way.

I did not use OStartup(OSTARTUP_MULTITHREADED) as it doesn't work with other MFC-OLE stuff (copy-paste automation). The error is "COM not initialized"

Is this application level error, e.g. my mistake or Oracle problem? Any suggestions will be apreciated
