With all due respect, I think you should reconsider triggers.  There
is no reason it needs to interfere with other processes.  The only
thing I can think of would be a *DELETE trigger, which prohibits the
use of CLRPFM while it is attached.  If you don't need to record info
on deletes, then even this should not be a problem.

What do you think will be the problem with a trigger?
