They do not stop replication: all that the ASE Replication Agent does is
look for log records that are marked for replication; it simply ignores
everything else.
But you need to enable the database option 'select
into/bulkcopy/pllsort' in order to perform such minimally logged
operations, and that may be soemthing that is not desired for other
reasons, namely the fact that you cannot dump the transaction log
anymore after a minimally logged operation. That is the reason why you
need to do a full database dump -- if you want to be able to recover
your database in case of a calamity.
