..actually, you can use any extension for an IB database as well. "gdb" is
only a convention - except for isc4.gdb, of course, which is hard-coded.

It looks as if you are getting hit by three things: XP's evil intentions
vis-a-vis files with "gdb" extension once when first connecting to isc4.gdb
and again when connecting to your database) and the known IB 6 "slow first
connection" bug. (Fixed in Firebird 1.5 beta and IB 7, has to be lived with
in other versions).

Still fixing the two which can be fixed should help a lot...
