Ah. First try gfix -v "e:\ib databases\luimber\lumber.gdb"

That will fix anything it can without danger of losing data. Then try
gfix -m "e:\ib databases\luimber\lumber.gdb". That will fix anything it
can, and may lose data. The combination -v -n does a validate without
changing anything. I always do that first, just to get an idea of the
severity of the problem.
