Yes, you have to quote the argument passed as the command to the 
daemon() function, otherwise it is currently interpreted as three 
separate commands:

1) daemon --user=$FBRunUser export FIREBIRD LD_LIBRARY_PATH;
2) echo;
3) $MANAGER -pidfile $pidfile -start -forever

...while you probably wanted:

daemon --user=$FBRunUser "export FIREBIRD LD_LIBRARY_PATH;echo;$MANAGER 
-pidfile $pidfile -start -forever"

(I also don't really understand the "echo;" part...wouldn't removing the 
"-n" parameter from the previous echo call do the same job? Just a side
