That is a bug. For the history, look at commit

Before that commit the statement handle was passed to the constructor;
the class had not allocated the handle, and thus it was not the
class's role to free it .... (I guess) unless it had taken ownership
of it by actually using it. I'm muddy on how the calling code was
supposed to "know" it should free it "because
ODatabaseMetaDataResultSet did not use it" or it was supposed *not* to
free it "because ODBMetaDataRS used it"; I can easily believe the code
was leaking statement handles in this way even back then (or
double-freeing them or whatever).

Anyway, since this commit, the handle is allocated privately "fresh"
by the class, and it should thus unconditionally free it on dispose;
m_bFreeHandle should die.

To you the honours of writing the patch? Put me as a reviewer, I'll
apply it.
