Got in touch with you so that we can play with the full version for a
limited time period for some kind of proof-of-concept.

That's IBO specific and it isn't related to the Trace API, but in the
mean-time, still worth to be investigated.

Bettern than 2.5.1 in respect to the Trace API.

We might be able to catch something without the log_errors configuration
parameter, but 2.5.2 got quite some stability enhancements. The key is,
we have to attach to the Firebird server via the Trace API, thus an
upgrade won't help if we can't reproduce the problem locally.
