We recently tried to restore a Firebird 1.5 database on Windows 2000. We are
using a pagesize of 8192 and a page count of 524288 giving a filesize of
4,294,967,296 (4GB). We restored the file three times and each of the times
we got gds consistency check error when we used the file. When we changed
the page count down to 524280, we are able to restore the file and use it
without error.

This has happened both at a client site and here on Windows XP.

Any ideas why this may be happening?
