I've amended the subject!
There is no problem with Firebird in most installations, the problem I
am highlighting and trying to get some feedback on relates to the most
recent updates to XP and is encapsulated in the link I provide!

We have had four more crashes with that error message this week and it
is getting annoying. We have already told the customer that we would
like to switch back to a stable version of Windows ( NT4 perhaps ;) )
but it has not gone down very well. We *KNOW* that Windows is crap, but
