OK, here's what I did:

1. Tried moving the app and the embedddl into a bin directory beneath
aliases.conf and firebird.conf. No joy.
2. Put everything back in original places and tried killing the FIREBIRD
variable. No joy.
3. Left FIREBIRD variable dead and ran instreg remove to get rid of the
registry entry. Success!!
4. Next, ran instreg install to restore the registry entry. Still success.

So - there's a solution. The next is to find out why removing and
restoring the registry entry solved it.
