Are you aware about the Firebird Field(UTF8) and SQLConnection
CharSet(UTF8) problem ?

Table X
  FieldTestName Varchar(5) UTF8

  CharSet = UTF8

//Source code file is UTF8 encoded.

This raises an exception because the string is 10 bytes and the field
only allow 5 chars.

I think I had read this comment many months ago and answered as "won'n
fix" for Interbase compatibility. Am I wrong ?
Best regards,
