InstantDB: Aggregate expression with math expression problem

I just downloaded instantDB last week and I am trying to get it working
with a project I am working on.  I have a table where I have several
values I want averages on.

Assume a table "T" with columns C1,C2,C3,C4 all long values

The following statements work:
select avg(C1) from T
select avg(C1*C2) from T
select avg(C1*5) from T

This statement does not work:

select avg(C1*C2*C3) from T
select avg(C1*C2*5) from T

For some reason, it there are three or more values in the mathmatical
expression, instantDB returns a error that it found a * where it
expected a ) symbol.  Does anybody have a workaround for this problem?

Thank you!

P.S: I saw some old messages on integrating JBuilder with instantDB but
no answers.  If anybody is still looking for this info, let me know and
I will post the solution that is working for me.
