IBConsole questions should be directed to the newsgroup

The reason is that IBConsole is a Borland thing, developed and controlled by
a member of TeamB (Jeff), whose source is supposedly to be updated at SF and
whose binaries are posted inside Borland's CodeCentral site.

If you see the error in Interbase, too, tell him in that newsgroup that you
see the error in Interbase. For political reasons, if you say the error is
against Firebird, Jeff will kick you. And you aren't lying since you said
you can see the problem against either IB or FB.

IBConsole is an horrible tool. I use it scarcely for basic commands only. I
don't blame Jeff. He is only trying to fix the crap that he received from
people that worked before him in IBConsole.
