In theory, only sysdba and the db owner should be able to backup a db. If
another user wants to do the trick, probably the intention was that this
should be possible, provided that:
- there's a role R that was granted rights over all objects (or at least
SELECT rights in most cases)
- there's a user U that's neither sysdba nor the db owner but that was
granted role R
- user U connects with role R through gbak to do the backup

I never have tried if this works in practice.
