Yes, I can :-(

I'm struggling with this behaviour every night at the moment.
Every night I need to exchange an existing database with a newer
one, but I'm not able to drop the database or to use 'gbak -r'
on that database because I'm not able to shut down all applications
accessing that db.

My solution actually is to shut down the whole Firebird (Super)Server;
but worse - all databases are concerned by that action, not only
the database I need to replace :-(((
