Not at all sure this was from anything your work did, but to give you a
heads up;

Working with the latest daily build (may 4th) under Ubuntu 18.10 (64bit).

Entered an issue today

The issue includes two test ODB files, almost identical. Single table, form
with image control, report (RB) with image control and 3 test images.

File one stores the images in the embedded database. File two stores a URL
to external image files.

File one (Image binary in table) works as expected under 6.1 for both the
form and report. However It fails to display any image data after migration
to a Firebird data engine.

File two (URL in table)  works as expected before and after the migration
to Firebird.

So, as I said thought I would just let you know.

Best wishes, Drew
