Have you looked at ODBCExpress?  It provides a direct link to ODBC without
using the BDE, and apparently, it is very fast.  I have been testing it out
and it looks very promising.  It handles large blobs with no problem. is the site to check out.

You're not merely right, you're really most sincerely right!
Have had to carefully name ODBC DSN to avoid delphi mistaking the
"Sybase" word and looking for the SQL Link..

  I would consider setting the session's SQLHourglass to false a major
workaround in BDE 4.01, not a fix.  The fix would be to debug DB.pas, which
Borland hopefully is taking the time to do before releasing BDE 4.5.
