In that case the same could be said of Mandrake 8.2 and Red hat
7.1. Vinicius reported the original problem on those 2 platforms. I
simply tested it with what I had and it was Windows 2000 with FB

Here's the original message sent on April 4, 2002:

"I have try to make this SQL an the SERVER STOP!!!


Firebird Server 1.0 769
Pentium 4 512 MB Ram
Mandrake 8.2
Firebird Server 1.0 769
AMD K6-2 550 128 Ram
Red Hat 7.1

In the 2 computers - CRASH...

Thanks Vinicius"

The connection is made using the character set UNICODE_FSS.

Have a nice day.
