I'm using IB_Query. The data is stored when I call Execute in the code, but
the IB_Query component's BeforePost does not execute at any point. Strange.
I'll make a dummy app and play with this a little, to see if it's something
else in my project that's causing this.

Yay, this is exactly where I'm going next - at this point I'm just taking
some shortcuts while learning, so autocommit is on to make things slightly
