With 2.5.6 on Win 10, it is as I described: I was running isql in
Firebird's bin directory and the database was created there.

The story is similar with Fb3: when DatabaseAccess is reverted to
Full, the database is written to Firebird's root dir, where isql now
resides. Tested with Fb 3.0.1 release.
