More stupid? I don't get that... I've once spend hours of debugging
for a certain statements that worked fine on IB and totally failed on
MS SQL because of this!

As said before, abimguity = bad. I don't get it that you can accept
that the engine produces results A for one time, and might produce
results B for another run of the same report!
