static void _php_ibase_close_link(zend_rsrc_list_entry *rsrc TSRMLS_DC) /*
{{{ *
ibase_db_link *link = (ibase_db_link *) rsrc->ptr;

_php_ibase_commit_link(link TSRMLS_CC);
if (link->handle != NULL) {
IBDEBUG("Closing normal link...");
isc_detach_database(IB_STATUS, &link->handle);
/* }}} */

directly inside IF statements), so I presume if it failed, there's another
function I can call to get any error text, like ERREXIT(status, 1), or

Basically, I'd like to patch PHP5.2.1 to actually return any error codes
from the detach process, instead of it dying silently...
