Subject Gbak validation error

Trying to restore a database using

Gbak -r -n -I -ig mydb.gbk mydb.inp -user sysdba -pass masterkey

Receive the following output....

Validation Error for column ANALTYPE value "*** NULL ***"
Warning - record could not be restored
Exiting before completion due to errors.

Does -n not ignore data validity conditions such as this and allow this DB
to be restored?

Using Firebird 1.5 RC6 on Windows2000 server.
