Vi agora do release notes do Firebird 2.5.2:

Firebird 2.5.2 Sub-release 

An important change was made to the implementation of the GEN_UUID()
function to make it comply properly with the requirements of RFC-4122. For
more information, refer to
2.html#rnfb25-dml-genuuid> this topic. 

A bug was corrected that caused faulty byte or character order in the
results of the functions
2.html#rnfb25-dml-uuid01> CHAR_TO_UUID and
2.html#rnfb25-dml-uuid02> UUID_TO_CHAR on big-Endian platforms. This
correction will impact code that called those functions on big-Endian hosts
in Firebird 2.5 or 2.5.1. 

Warning re Databases Created or Restored under Firebird 2.5.1

All users upgrading from Firebird 2.5.1 to a higher sub-release are strongly
advised to migrate databases using gbak backup/restore. If this is
impracticable, at least rebuild all compound indices in the databases being

Databases being upgraded from older Firebird versions (ODS 11.1 and lower)
or v.2.5.0 are not affected by this regression. 

Realmente será necessário fazer uso do gbak.
