The API working doesn't give much help to resolve this, the wording
for the exception in JDK 1.6 is 

    SQLException - if there is an error accessing the CLOB value

which I guess is equivalent to YMMV... A case for Lance?

Even if this case is allowed, should it make a difference if position
is > (length+1), e.g. getSubString(2,0) for an empty CLOB?
