Subject trouble with RC1

I'm in trouble since I installed RC1. When I select many records from
my database, and then commit the transaction, the server seems to
hang for a very long time. The first thing I wanted to check was the
statistics header page of my database, but since I installed RC1, it
is not possible anymore : a message says the database file can't be
opened. This happen with IBConsole and also by using the IBX

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I'm new to YahooGroups,
and I really don't see how one can possibly manage to read the news
with the web interface. Is there a way to join these groups from a
news-group reader, like Outlook Express?

Thank you for you help,
Vincent Schmid
