One possible explanation is that changes to the FB database are being scanned by an antivirus program, and that the SQL Server database has been explicitly excluded from the scan.

The other possible explanation is to do with the type of RAID controller card. I believe some cards are unable to efficiently handle page writes above a certain size (or something like that). A client of ours had this problem, and it was solved in this way by their server-supplier changing the card. Sorry to be so vague.
