Charlie Caro has stated that the client is not thread-safe on a local
connection. I currently have inquiries out to the architecty-people to
discover what the cause is, as it clearly has implications for some
server-base middleware applications that rely on threads to pool connections.

Charlie Caro admits it is a bug on local connections but doesn't (so far)
say what, if anything, Borland will do about it.

Ann Harrison and Jim Starkey are working on a fix for Firebird, but that's
probably not too meaningful for a v.5.6 installation. :(
