Damyan Ivanov announced :
I have prepared packages from the current version in wheezy
(220.127.116.11351), built for squeeze.
If these improve the situation, then we at least know the bug is fixed
in that version and can start looking for the exact fix, which would
take about 10 iterations (and probably several weeks).

The organisation uses Debian GNU/Linux on half of their servers, i.e. about 10 systems.
It is used for two web servers, for the mail server and on a system for project administration, running a Firebird database. Debian was chosen since it’s the ultimate form of Open Source, and reliable as well. Since Hivos works for creating a better world, fights poverty and uses
No Borders for People as its motto, choosing Debian is natural.
Here is the changelog . Revision 2106 already imported from debian sid.
Here is the chage log so there will be no need to add stable Firebird 2.5 ppa in Ubuntu Natty just follow the install instructions.

Check if libedit is used instead of readline
ldd /usr/bin/isql-fb | grep libedit
libedit.so.2 => /usr/lib/libedit.so.2 (0x00007f3dcbd7b000)
check if is preloaded
ldd /usr/bin/isql-fb | grep readline
Then use isql-fb as usual
