Connect DB2 table via ODBC with CLOB or Text datatype.

I am attempting to connect a DB2 table using the following command line:

create table TASKS engine=connect table_type=ODBC block_size=1000 tabname='ISW.TASKS' connection='DSN=DB2_ODBC;UID=user;PWD=password;MODE=SHARE;DBALIAS=SCODS;';

and I receive the following error: ERROR 1105 (HY000): Unsupported SQL type -99

My belief is that because CONNECT is retrieving the table description using ODBC catalog functions and since the DB2 table contains a column that has a datatype of CLOB that Mariadb is throwing the above error.

When I attempt to specify the column definitions for the DB2 table, and define the column as TEXT or BLOB, I receive the following error: SQL Error (1163): Storage engine CONNECT doesn't support BLOB/TEXT columns.

Is there a way to CONNECT a DB2 table via ODBC or Direct Connection to a table that contains CLOB or Text defined columns? I do not have any issue connecting other tables from the DB2 database that do not contain CLOB datatypes.
