Database link hangs when attempting to link a table from Microsoft Access 2010 to Oracle database using Oracle ODBC driver.

The issue can be consistently reproducible with below scenario.

1. Have 2 databases, Local database (A) and remote database (B). Create a database link between the 2 databases.
