i would guess IBConsole is the problem. you could try IBOConsole by Lorenzo
Mengoni from, a fixed and enhanced version
of IBConsole.

or look on under "admin tools" for some more options.

you may also try a newer release of Firebird if that doesn't solve your problem
(build .796 is the "official" 1.0 release), though it's unlikely that FB is the
source of the problem.


when parsers parse, and compilers compile, then why don't objects object?
