I believe IBExpert let's you type the view definition, press "Save"
and THEN issues the statement and you have to commit it from
some kind of dialog.

Care to try "Database Workbench" as a front-end?
It's unique - it let's you also MODIFY a view source, as long as the
column definition stays the same.
