I didn't realize earlier versions of Firebird would break as a result of
that SQL statement. I have fixed this immediately and it will be in the next

I cannot say why there was a stack overflow when it was modified as the
results of the query should indeed be the same as Set points out.

I already made the change and I get no stack overflow condition.
