Attached is the reg file that changes this setting to 5 mins, run it and it should fix the problem with ghost users in the database.
Thank you. To be run on the host, I presume?

On the server. That setting tells Firebird whether there's still a connection or not.

So far so good.
I did a test: hard break, plugged off the network cable from the guest. 30 sec. later on the host: still two users. 4 minutes later, only one.
Seems to work.
Shame it took so long to solve it. The problem persisted since at least 5.x

Thanks for the confirmation. This isn't really related to EPIM, rather to the system TCP/IP configuration.
