Hi Set,

when I used FB2.1 I had the installion in SuperServer configuration. With FB2.5 I install it as SuperClassic.

I can sort of understand that the Classic server cannot lock the file, creating separate processes. But as I understand SuperClassic is a single process creating multiple threads and locking should therefore be possible, I think, but maybe not.

I would just like to get some clarity about the situation.
