I don't like raising my head above the parapet on this one, but running 
on Linux x86 (32-bit):

If Lazarus trunk is built with 2.6.0 the bug described at 
http://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=22463 does not occur.

If Lazarus trunk is built with 2.6.2 rc1 the bug is reproducible.

The SQL in the attachment can be simplified to the six lines given in 
one of the notes. LacaK2 appears to have demonstrated that the error 
does not occur if the SQL is forced in as part of the program rather 
than from the Lazarus IDE, but this bug still appears to be something to 
do with the compiler version.

The error can be seen simply by reading the project into the Lazarus 
IDE, it's not necessary to compile/run. I've not managed to get anywhere 
tracking this down myself.
