Yes, you are right, we are using 8.1.5 On Linux, and it swallows 
up to 4k. But having to split a string to get it in the database 
feels pretty stupid.

Yep, I tried to look at oci.c/oci.i sources and got shocked... 
Maybe overnight I'll gather some courage to see if it would 
be feasible to use 'bind variables' to push data in to the long 
columns. Or will it be easier to split text with a python 
external method.
