In the following snippet, $bstr is set to some binary data, not a blob id string:
- bstr is not accepted by ibase_query
- on echoing bstr, the closing brace is NEVER printed
- strlen( bstr ) segfaults php...

    $dbh = ibase_connect( "localhost:/path/to/db/db.gdb", "user", "pass" );
    $bid = ibase_blob_create( $dbh );
    ibase_blob_add( $bid, "alpha" );
    $bstr = ibase_blob_close( $bid );
    $sql = "INSERT INTO testtable values(1,$bstr)";
    ibase_query( $dbh, $sql );
    ibase_close( $dbh );

Apart from the segfault on strlen, which is non-Interbase related, this is behaviour as expected. You can only use binding with blob ids, because the contents of the string have no meaning to the engine, only to the PHP layer. Furthermore, it's a binary string so it looks like garbage.
