Thank you very much again Dmitry.

I now understand. It is very clear now.

Nope. The Next Transaction number is reset to 1 when a new database is
created. This is a very beginning of the restore process. Then gbak
restores metadata and data, and it can be done in multiple transactions,
depending on switches. IIRC, -o[nce] starts transaction per every
restored table and -v[erbose] starts transaction per every restored
index. There may be other side effects I'm not aware of.
