FWIW, IBO has been fine with Firebird 1.0 since the fix which Jason put
into the IBO 4.2Gb patch the same day Firebird 1.0 was released. The new
build from IBPhoenix restores things to normality for versions of IBO that
are *earlier* than 4.2Gb.

AFAIK, the 821 build is "Firebird-unofficial" (even though the official Win
builds are all done on the IBPhoenix gear these days). Firebird itself is
assembling a number of bits and pieces for a 1.1 release. I know we are
still waiting for some things for 1.1. Just take it as a "hug" from Paul
Reeves, that he took Claudio's reversion code for the insert parsing and
did this special build for the benefit of IBO users.

Don't hold your collective breath if you are using these older IBO
versions. The reversion is temporary - already deprecated - being contrary
to SQL standards.
