I guess I'm confused. The individual database access programs (called INET
servers) in the classic model are 90% shared library, but they do require a
process context. Perhaps I'm being dim. Each connection starts a process
so it controls it's own volatile data structures. I'm at a loss to see
why that disrupts other IB applications on the system - except in the normal
way that database users (and O/S processes) conflict with each other.
