aliases.conf and firebird.msg are located differently. The former one is
loaded by the server and the registry entry is not required for that
(although it will be used if exists). The latter one is read by the client
library and if it's located outside the firebird's /bin, then you'll need a
registry entry *or* you'll need to put firebird.msg one level up than
fbclient/gds32 resides.
