Ah, I see. No, gbak doesn't go to STDOUT. There is a fix in the code which
remedies this for the next maintenance release of Fb1.0. (Don't ask me when
the next maintenance release is due - Autumn, I guess.)

You can use the -y option to write the log to a file. The trick there is to
make sure that the file doesn't exist.
