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.
