Subject Firebird 1.0.0 and SQL Dialect 3

I have a Red Hat 7.1 box on which I have installed Firebird 1.0.0

When I create a database with either IBConsole or IBExpert from a
client workstation I always get a dialect 1 database (And yes I do
set it before creating the database).

BTW! When looking at the the database I created, the sweep interval
is set to 0.
Oh yes while at it: It works ok with the Windows Firebird 1.0.0.

Any idea's ?
