Never had this, and I have some big databases (10Mb with no data), has
anyone else come across this? The only backup/restore problem I know of is
with IBConsole, but that's a pile of Poo anyway.

Do you mean gds32? we have had up to 200 concurrent connections on a local
machine (Webserver) before things started taking a turn for the worst, but
AFAIK, this was more down to the OS than IB

Don't need it, don't use it.

Maybe we need to have a list somewhere of possible bugs, as well as
successful deployments. I been reading every IB newsgroup, and have not
heard of these two.
