IB doesn't seem to be 100% on the ball about detecting failed clients. Is
it feasible, for example, to employ the EVENT mechanism to poll for and
detect lost and terminated connections and free the memory those
connections used? I know this is a little off-course but, on the surface,
it appears a possible way to excise this old InterBase wart while the
patient is in for more major surgery ...
