Local meaning two things, viz.

1. Running the application on the same machine as the database
server & database

2. Connection via localhost with Protocol setting cpTCP_IP vs. the
IP Server with empty Server property and Protocol cpLocal.

Your mention of XP Pro rang a bell. One of the Windows service packs
(SP2?) broke the availability of additional local loopback ports and
caused AVs with local apps using events....Microsoft put out a hotfix
for goes back some time but you should still be able to google it.

Have you tested whether you get the problem with remote clients?
