I'm attempting to install fb1.5.2 on RH9, the
file /opt/firebird/misc/firebird.init.d.generic includes

echo '$FIREBIRD/bin/fbmgr -start -forever' | su $FBRunUser

which won't work, it all seems to work fine however if I just
make it into

$FIREBIRD/bin/fbmgr -start -forever

is there a downside? What problem am I creating for myself
