I was browsing my Firebird-support archive yesterday, and I did see
somebody mentioning that depending on the (disk)cache configuration of
Windows, changes might actually never be written out to disk, unless the
file is actually closed by the application. If there was some kind of
crash, this could mean that the changes were never actually written to

I am not sure what setting that would be though, and I do think it is
highly unlikely that this would still happen in Windows.
