Right. Firebird (and InterBase) documents tend to use the term
REPEATABLE READ to mean that if a transaction does the same query twice,
it will get the same results - nothing more, nothing less. No that the
SQL people have redefined 'repeatable' to mean almost the same results -
nothing less and maybe some new stuff, we're in a confusing state.
