A word of warning. Firebird will create new databases with Forced Writes
on. Anyone migrating from 6.0 will find that restored databases honour
the setting that was on when the backup was made. As the default for 6.0
was OFF it will remain off until gfix is used to changed it.

There is an almost undocumented feature in ISQL that we added to Fb 1.0
to make it easy to check whether Forced writes is on or off. Connect to
the database and type:

show db;
