As far as I can see NIST (http://www.itl.nist.gov/div897/ctg/sql_form.htm)
tests are used *only* for testing SQL92 conformance.
Latest available test suite version 6, dated 12/1996.
Are you using about 6-7 years old test suite?
Perhaps I am wrong, I would be happy If someone could point me up-to-date
info about NIST conformance testing.
