From the context, it sounds as if there may be an incompatibility
between the 32 and 64 bit gbak's. If I were you, and was willing
to spend the time, I'd try restoring that backup on a 32 bit
Linux version of Firebird 2.0 and on a Firebird/Linux 1.5. If
the 1.5 fails, come back here and we'll figure out what's going
on because it's something specific to your database - probably a
bug in gbak, but a low probability one. If the restore works
on 1.5, take the results to the devel list -
