With Firebird shut down - just rename the file xxx.GDB to xxx.FDB

We just avoid using .gdb extension in windows because M$ uses that extension for
some if it's own stuff, and forces automatic backups because it is a 'system
file'. Renaming to xxx.FDB simply removes the potential problem.

Alternatively - backup xxx.GDB and restore to xxx.FDB ...
