All the workarounds I mentioned above work. Although for the second
workaround it is actually necessary to create the user, just starting
gsec is not sufficient.

Another workaround is to change the AuthServer setting to only Legacy_Auth.

I have also created to
ask the Firebird developers to continue with the next plugin for these
types of failures.

I will also consider if I can move the introduction of a connection
property to control the list of plugins to try and their order, to
before the Jaybird 3 release.

The error is a straight out failure, so it is not possible for Jaybird
to continue with the next plugin on its own (using a Firebird 3
fbclient.dll will exhibit the same behavior if it tries Srp first).
