Here's my new theory. Mobile doesn't support libURL, which is what
handles the connections on desktop. When I ask for a remote connection
to a database, something takes over that seems to repeatedly try to
connect and times out (10+ secs or so.) In between timeouts I have a
window where touches are processed, then I have to wait for the next
timeout. In the meantime, the app is in a continual state of sending and
waiting for a response from the server. Closing the database connection
isn't enough to stop the process.
This is my completely unknowlegeable theory based only on observation.
But the conclusion is: remote database connections are not supported.
