What version are you using ? This bug
(beware, the url will line wrap)
existed in firebird until 2001-01-28 and may still exist in the
borland version.

The bug makes -user and -passowrd not work with -a or -x.
You can use the ISC_USER and ISC_PASSWORD environment variables
as a workaround.

Unless I'm mistaken, the current firebird binaries were
also built before the bug fix date.
