So far we have been unable to isolate it, so the focus has temporarily 
shifted to getting the production environment reasonably stable - even 
if it means running experimental 2.0 packages.

The segfaults occur every few minutes, and every few days firebird gets 
deadlocked. For the segfaults the queries thats in-flight fails, but 
fbguard recovers firebird nicely. Not that lucky with the deadlocks 
though, but a nagios check at least makes it getting fixed in a 
reasonable timeframe..

Any tips on getting fbserver to run under a debugger maybe?
