In interbase.public.general, Jeff wrote in thread "interbase vs firebird":
"There is no bug. The fact that the Dll is not thread safe in and of itself
not a bug. Since adding thread safety to that DLL would slow it down in all
situations I for one do not want to see gds32.dll made thread safe as a
of applications do not need it. That doesn't mean I don't want to see a
thread safe version like C++ RTL's are done (in C++ there is usually a
safe version of the RTL and a non thread safe version)."

Maybe, we will have a second dll thread safe on future giving choice option
to developer. But if this dll will going slow down the app, I don't see any
advantage in your use.
