gds32.dll needs 'replacing' in the php_interbase windows setup, but of
cause that should be an Interbase one. So until we actually cloan a

I switched to c/s a long time ago - we went live just before Interbase
announced the end of life of Interbase ;) After three years of moving TO
Interbase it was a little anoying ... but Firebird has been running our
