Not a one. Just tested it on RC8 in both isql and IB_SQL and get date-only
in both cases. Even a literal right at midnight:

select cast(cast('2004-01-29 00:00:00.0000' as timeStamp)as date)
from rdb$database

You don't have any DISTINCT there, or inner joins, that might be causing
records to get "lost"?
