Mainly connect/disconnect is extremly slow. The following is a result
of an ongoing discussion in a German newsgroup.

InterBase 6 and Firebird seem to work well on Windows 2003 when you
optimize the processor and memory to *Programs* and when you disable
the new "Shadow Copy Volumes" (it's a new feature in Windows 2003)
feature for the partitions, where the database files are stored.

Again, Firebird 1.5 works well under Windows 2003 without these
