There was (is?) a leak problem in converting strings to blobs, that showed
up and was fixed during Firebird 2 development. Would you please ask about
this in firebird-devel, citing the version of Firebird that you are
using. Someone there should be able to tell you whether the fix was
back-ported to Fb 1.5.2. Unfortunately, though I was responsible for
collating the point release notes, I can't find any indication that the
back-porting was done.

Ask that question on fb-devel, too.
