OK, I'll try detaching the handle instead of making a copy of it...
Can I def disposeh a detached resourece handle to get rid of it, or do I
still need to call releaseresource?

I've always found the syntax of FN HandToHand puzzling and I got into the
habit of doing it this way when, in an earlier version of FB, FN HandToHand
just did not work...

OK, but if I've made a copy of the alias handle, or detached it, and I've
locked the copy handle or the detached handle, is your comment still valid?
