I don't think he meant that. Euvgeny suspected the known issue with WinXP
where the .gdb extension belongs to the list of extensions for which system
recovery is enabled. This causes slow connection times when server runs on

The behavior you see is somehow related to opening the socket connection.
Try connecting to the server via isql and check the times. There is nothing
in FBWrappingDataSource that could cause the delay, it is very likely to be
either related to network configuration or to your server installation.
