This means nothing. ISP can place gdb's in different directories, and nobody
will know name of another databases on the same server.
Also if we talking about ISP, applications that use FB will work on ISP
servers, not at client computers (client-server is not applicable for internet.
Strong IMHO). In this case port 3050 can be opened with FW only for some IP's
