Thanks, maybe I will indeed try a COUNT query first, although it may
be expensive under some circumstances.

I thought that RowsSelected is supposed to reflect that number of rows
in the result set on the server. Apparently it does something else.

I wonder is there's anything in the IB/FB API that can be used to
retrieve the number of selected rows before fething.
