Is there some way to select (e.g. from the sys tables) the current application role ?

I have the classic "General Network Error" caused by calling sp_setapprole when the oledb method returns a pooled connection. (see;en-us;Q229564)

If I can detect the application role I can stop this error from happening and still get the performance gains of connection pooling which I think we need.
