The right place for this is actually the issue tracker:
http://bugs.digium.com, but since you're already here, I need to ask the
obvious question of:  are you using "pooling=yes" in res_odbc.conf?  That
option should prevent this issue from occurring.

In terms of the ODBC option, we'll look into it, but I doubt it's as effective
as running the generic query.  There are some databases (notably MySQL)
where doing the database ping simply doesn't work.
