Transaction ids are 32 bits for Firebird 1.5, Firebird 2.0, and Vulcan.
We may address that issue as part of the merge. If you ran 130
transactions per second 24/7, it would take slightly more than a year
to run out of transaction ids. We strongly recommend backing up and
restoring every database once a year, which resets transaction ids.
