please keep the reply on the list so that others can contribute. The error 
you are receiving:
('HY000', 1, '[unixODBC]Could not begin a transaction;\nCould not send 
Query to backend;\nCould not flush socket buffer.', 5928)

Is coming from unixODBC and refers to the database connection. As such it is 
unlikely to have anything to do with the the SQL you are sending but might be 
related to the connection settings you have. Please pass this error message 
to your sys admin or DBA to see if they can help you.
