Maybe gbak was changed later because I can verify in code and in practice
that nobody apart from sysdba can log in while the db is being restored.

Was the db on a path with short names or not? I know a way you can log in
the same db twice and confuse the engine:
- userA creates db
- userB logs in before userA logs off (userA may be working with DDL or DML)
- engine sees two different connections.
This effect is the same if you replace userA by gbak.
I fixed that bug in FB but any IB still suffers from it.
