Symptoms

Using the Database Gateway for ODBC (DG4ODBC) 12.1.0.2 to access an Informix database using the Informix 4.10 ODBC driver from Oracle 11.2.0.3 and 11.2.0.4 gives error -

ORA-28500: connection from ORACLE to a non-Oracle system returned this message:
[Informix][Informix ODBC Driver]Invalid argument value. {HY009,NativeErr = -11066}
ORA-02063: preceding 2 lines from ODBC_LINK

The problem does not reproduce using the Data Direct ODBC driver.
Using Oracle Database 12c and DG4ODBC 12c also works successfully.

A select without a bind parameter works using 12.1.0.2 DG4ODBC accessed from Oracle Database 11.2.0.3 and 11.2.0.4
