you are talking about one of Firebird's major weaknesses here and I'm
afraid there will not be a solution to your problem for Firebird
1.5.x. Shutting down the Service was the only solution back at
InterBase 4 and it still is now.

I also use the client connections to count licences and this really is
not a solid solution (but the best one currently available). Your
situation seems to be worse than mine, but I have also already got
calls where we had to restart the Firebird Service in order to reset
the licence counter.

AFAIR the situation will improve with Firebird 2.1 (that's not the
upcoming 2.0.1!), but I may be wrong.

Best Regards
