IIRC, Ann has mentioned that SEGMENT SIZE is a legacy issue that hasn't really been used in some time.

Our application uses BLOB fairly extensively and can report that the GBAK disk write rate increases very significantly when tables with Blobs are being backed-up, orders of magnitude faster than tables with small rows (YMMV), so this suggests that SEGMENT SIZE does not have any effect on GBAK.
