When the ODBC driver closes its connections, the Mtxoci.dll module of the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MSDTC) can leak threads. For example, you may find hundreds of the following threads in the Microsoft SQL Server process:
ChildEBP RetAddr   
044ffef0 77e56a15 ntdll!ZwWaitForSingleObject+0xb
044fff18 77e56a3d KERNEL32!WaitForSingleObjectEx+0x71 
044fff28 066ba975 KERNEL32!WaitForSingleObject+0xf
044fff48 066c0e5b MTXOCI!COCIConnection::FactotumSink+0x45
044fff68 066c0e21 MTXOCI!CFactotum::ServicingState+0x1b 
044fff78 066c070c MTXOCI!CFactotum::ThreadMain+0x21 
044fff80 7800a27b MTXOCI!ThreadRoutine+0xc 
044fffb4 77e5758a MSVCRT!_threadstart+0x57 
044fffec 00000000 KERNEL32!BaseThreadStart+0x52


When the MSDTC XA Transaction Manager disconnects from the database while active transactions exist, an internal reference countering problem may cause the internal service threads inside the Mtxoci.dll module to remain in service.
