Thanks Milan:

I commented out the svc->Shutdown() function call, and the recovery seems to work fine with the app using embedded Firebird and another app running client server. This was a server on localhost, I'll check it out on a server running on a remote host later.

So I guess I'll just leave it commented out.

Milan and Martijn, as I've told you both before, I appreciate your advice.

It's almost 6:00 in the morning here on the West coast of the US, so I'm going to hit the sheets. I'll check back after I wake up.
