(no trying to sound rude or anything, having to do with users myself)

In this case, I presented you with an easy reproducable case (preparing
a single SQL statement) and traced it down to the method where it went
wrong... Then, I had no idea what the method actually did :)

The problem IBO has with IB6.5 is that it seems to remove _any_ SQL
statements after the ORDER BY clause (see reproducable case) ->
hence, it will never work with the ROWS clause... Personally, I think
this is a bit too much work done by IBO and it makes it extra hard to
keep up with new stuff, like ROWS, for example...
