I'm not a SQL Server person.  I'm responding to a Neglected question alert.

There's not a lot of error messages to work with.  I suggest you contact Oracle Support on this one since no other Expert has shown up.

We had to fire alter session close database link dblinkname before firirng the insert statment.
This resolved the issue.
