Still, there is a theorical potential for corruption isn't there? I know
I've had corruption before, due to having to kill the ibserver.exe
process, because of a recursive SP. I think the same thing could happen,
theoretically, if the machine gets shut off abruptly while a database
write is in progress.

Am I wrong?
