Unfortunately, I'm not in a position to comment any further, since I
don't have a SMP computer to test it. Just by curiosity, did you?
(Don't worry, I'm not doubting you, without any formal proof it's hard
to definitely give an answer either way, yours or mine) And on the
other hand, you have some saying that it works fine on Linux SMP, but
are not giving more details than that. So, I suppose we can both
safely assume that FB 3.0 will be the true support for SMP for Windows
and Linux.
