     Thanks for your answer.
     The bug I found, when I migrated from Debian 5.0 to Debian 6.0 ( 
and accordingly from Firebird Super Sever 2.0.4 to 2.5.0 ) raises a 
String Truncation Error when selecting from views that contain a SELECT 
with a  NOT IN inside.
     It is documented in http://tracker.firebirdsql.org/browse/CORE-3211 
and it was resolved in version 2.5.1
     This bug wasn't in Firebird 2.0.4 (Debian 5.0) , and isn't any more 
in 2.5.1. It only exists in 2.5.0 that is just the version deployed with 
Debian 6.0 Stable.

     Do you think this bug must be reported to submit at bugs.debian.org ?
