What do the users typically do when this happens? Do you do any DDL against tables that are in use? Tell us a lot more about your situation, e.g. exact Firebird version (errors are more likely to happen on Fb 0.9.4 than Fb 2.1.5), whether you use UDFs or not (they're a common source of problems), operating system, is it used for anything besides Firebird, any particular type of antivirus etc.

The more specific you are in your problem description, the more likely you are to get good answers.
