Because there may be two different bugs? The sweep bug that was fixed
originally appeared in v5.5. It was to do with indexes containing nulls.

You can make a bug report here:

If you can provide a test case, or a clear description of how to
reproduce the problem there is a much higher chance that someone will
pick this up and look at it. Firebird developers are as pushed for time
as everyone else. Anything you can do to make it easy for them will
help. Don't forget details such as OS, number of CPU's etc.

See this link:

for info on how to discuss this in firebird-devel. I'd recommend that
you assemble the info for the bug-report first. If not, the first
questions that will be asked are 'What OS?, how many cpu's? What
architecture? Can you provide steps to reproduce this?' etc etc.
