If it were not for the fact that the FB sources started from the IB 6.0

IB did not have the same "support the previous ODS outlook on things",
and as I recall the beta release notes were clear about lack of support
for ODS 9.

Remember, that 6.0 included the new 64bit integer and time/date data
types along with the whole concept of dialect..., so the fact that they
wouldn't bother to support ODS 9 would not be a surprise...
