It's a long time now since I had any BDE stuff to convert -
fortunately because BDE NEVER worked for me in a 24/7
environment. I was put off changing to IBO because of the
sort of 'problem' you are seeing, and so 'lost' 6 months
when I could have been more productive. Once I took the
plunge again, I started with a clean build, rather than
trying to convert what I had, and achieved much better results.

IBO does a lot of the work for you, but carrying over
'baggage' from the BDE 'bug fixes' does not work well. That
said, I had to live with converted stuff as well, until I
could re-write all of the modules in native IBO. THAT is
still on-going, but only low usage stuff remains as BDE

I would say "Treat BDE convert as a starting point, but
re-write those sections that seem to slow you down ASAP".
Some sections will sing straight away, so I just depends on
how much 'bodging' you did to get BDE to work anyway :)
