"ORA-01000: maximum open cursors exceeded" with incomplete iterations

Description

When using iterate and NOT iterating through all items, the cursor stays open.
When repeating this several times the "maximum open cursors exceeded" - exception occurs.

This problem occured in the following situation:
We have an import tool, which reads one line from an import-file and queries the database for colliding/overlapping objects.
The objects are loaded whit iterate. The first object which doesn't fit the new input throws an exception and so leaves the iterate-loop.

There is no function to close the iterator explicitly.
This would solve the problem (once the developer is aware of it).

My current workaround ist to use query.list().iterator() instead of query.iterate().
But this is only applicable with small resultsets.

I'll do an update of Hibernate soon and see if it still occurs.

The attached test crashes after 300 iterations.
300 is the open cursor limit for my DB.
