gstat reads the database files directly, i.e. doesn't make a client
connection. On Linux the user running gstat needs system-level access to
the database files. Perhaps at some point since the docs were written, the
same restriction was added for the Win32 server platforms. Or maybe this
is some peculiarity of the Classic build on Win32 - which you should be
treating as experimental at this stage.

gstat can only be run on a local db, but it looks as if you are doing that.

Can you get read privs on the database directory? If you can, and it
works, would you please let me know?

Would you please post the problem description on firebird-devel, in case
it's a bug.
