The problem occurs when calling connection.Dispose() inside TransactionCompleted() event of System.Transaction.
The dispose is not being handled correctly and therefore the connection is not released back to the pool.
The client application gets connection timeout exception (ie ODP-1000) as a result when all connections have been exhausted.
