  Your database still get corrupted. gbak reads whole db therefore it detect corruption. But gbak is nor a reason of corruption, nor
a correct tool for diagnosis (gfix is). I ask you again to check RAM on server machine. One more question - does you run DDL
statements such as ALTER TABLE on live database ?
