Hi James

I use Firebird on woody, so maybe there's another catch with
unstable I'm not aware of. But let's try anyway. 

First of all, move the preferences out of the way (mv ~/.phoenix
~/phoenix.OFF). 

Then I recommend you download the nightly build 2003-05-25; it's been
rock-solid for me and others, IMHO it's better than Release 0.6.
Right now I'm using 2003-06-30, which might prove as good. 

Start MozillaFirebird in an xterm, giving the full path to the
application, and see what happens.
