weekend (yes the same muppets that whinge that we should implement a
password expiration policy but anyone can walk up to their machine and
do whatever) and we do not experience these sorts of issues. There is
no keepalive timer on this setup.
I do not know what IBOConsole does, certainly if you could duplicate
it using iSQL as the client on multiple machines, there may be a case
for a bug report.
If Firebird implemented its own keepalive heartbeat, then we would
never run into this problem, but naturally that is easier said than done.
