Because of the timing. Squeeze was frozen before 2.5.0 final was

Frankly, I don't know. On one hand, changes between the RC and 2.5.1 
are not trivial. On the other, they are supposed to be only bug fixes 
and stability issues, so should be acceptable by the stable release 

I guess I'll have to ask them and see what happens. Can you file a bug 
against firebird2.5 explaining the reason why you need the upgrade? 
Mentioning specific issues would be helpful. Thanks!
