Now *I* am confused :(
I'm using the datadict with bitweaver and the driver setting is 'firebird',
but you are right, the early ibase stuff was Dialect 1, so I provided firebird
and firebird15 for 1 and 3 so I could simply switch.
It looks like even in bitweaver I'm not ACTUALLY using the firebird datadict,
but the generic one. I think the reason that it has not been a problem is that
all the tweaks where building the metadata area ACTUALLY in the driver rather
than the datadict module, and this explains why I could not get your early fix
working in my setup.

I need to run the whole of the bitweaver install checklist with this corrected
to see what the affect is, although I doubt that I will actually find a
problem since the generic stuff is working correctly anyway.......

Quick check ...
It *IS* using firebird datadict - I get BLOB's and BIGINT which only exist in !
