Subject Dialect 1 vs. 3: DATE to VARCHAR CAST results in different date/time format
Author Thomas Steinmaurer

Executing the following in both, dialect 1 and 3:

select cast(current_timestamp as varchar(30))from rdb$database

results in a string with a different date/time format. At least on
Windows with Firebird 2.5 64-bit.

Dialect 1: 7-DEC-2015 20:29:12.3820
Dialect 3: 2015-12-07 20:31:07.2280

Is this intended?
