Revise that to "isn't thread-safe at all". That will change with Firebird
2 and the replacement of the IPServer hack with a proper local protocol
built on the XNET subsystem.

In short, if you need to multi-thread an app that connects locally, DON'T
user the current FbEmbedded (or IPServer with the full server). Use
Classic or Superserver full server and connect through localhost.
