No - if you add extra spaces they are correctly returned, I'm not seeing
them trimmed, but on other client tools the default is to trim
(IBObjects for instance). The original question was just about the
general case of raw ibase_ calls and what they did.

Everything I use is running nicely on PHP5, so thanks for your work on it.
