Maybe you should try changing the blob type? (as a test, anyway)
For InterBase 6 there are reserved 7 subtypes:

0 - Unstructured, generally applied to binary data or data of an
indeterminate type
1 - Text
2 - Binary language representation (BLR)
3 - Access control list
4 - (Reserved for future use)
5 - Encoded description of a table's current metadata
6 - Description of multi-database transaction that finished irregularly

or  possbly sub_type -1 segment size 65535  ---user defined subtype -1 with
segment size of 64K for example
