Martijn, did you notice the thread in ib_support about aliasing and
Named Pipes? In short, aliasing is broken for NP, and has been
through all of the Fb 1.5 release versions.

It did work was working at the time I wrote the Book
(during the betas). Dmitry fixed it in Firebird 2 and says it would
be a fairly trival fix to do for Fb 1.5.4 (if we do one). He did say
he would try to find time to do a patch...
