I simply don't know. If you have IB 6.5 or 7, you could look up the
bug-fix list in the release notes; or just run a test-case.

It was fixed in FB 1.0.

With Fb 1.5 another (potentially more serious) bug with parameters was
fixed, to do with the order in which return values were presented in the
XSQLDA. It was such a long-term bug that IBO has long included processing
to work around it. It is still needed for all IB and FB versions before Fb

If you use 1.5, you need to go into firebird.conf and activate the
OldParameterOrdering parameter. This fixes things for your IBO apps but,
unfortunately, it breaks things for any non-IBO apps using the same
Firebird server. Jason will be doing a "workaround for the workaround" for
some forthcoming point release of IBO. The solution isn't as simple as it
might appear, either...
