Test Details:
Implemented using test_type = 'ISQL'.
Main idea: run execute statement on EXTERNAL datasource and specify every time
different ROLE (no matter is that role exists or no - new connection always will be
etsblished and will be provided with new attachment_id in mon$attachments).

 Description  « Hide
By the original design, non-privileged database users are allowed to see only their own attachment information inside the monitoring tables. It has been requested to allow them to see other attachments authenticated using the same user name.

Not sure this is a good idea if there's middleware that logs in multiple times with the same user, but the end user is different.

In the worst case (middleware works with SYSDBA or DBO permissions) this issue exists since v2.1.0. Maybe the middleware should not expose the monitoring features to the end user in this case?
