I think I see the problem: it looks as though somebody has left 
TIBConnection registration right at the end in (Lazarus's) 
RegisterUnitSQLdb without any conditional around it, possibly to avoid 
working out the commas :-)

It might be easiest if somebody could get the unit back into FPC- I can 
check it compiles immediately, and should be able to run it in anger 
within a couple of weeks.
