Did you check for the "Windows System Restore" problem ???

Win XP has in the list of files .GDB since when you touch the file windows
will make a copy for backup. You can disable system restore, or can change
de database name for something like data.fdb.

Take a look at older messages you will find more detailed information.

See you !
