It is a run-time error that occurs when you have a data overflow. If it is
happening now and did not before - with the same data - then it is Fb 1.5's
greater strictness about overflows that is giving rise to it - a string
that is longer than 32,765 bytes? a string being written into a char or
varchar that is too small to receive it? a numeric or decimal type
resulting from a calculation that ends up with a greater scale than a
variable or column can accommodate? etc. etc.

Without knowing what exactly your app was trying to do at the time, one
could not be more exact about what to look for.
