The -u switch in gfix is NOT an abbreviated form for the username but
for page-fill capacity, i.e., -u[se] with the argument reserve (for
reserve space) or full (for use the full page). It's not what you
want, I know, but don't set this to full unless the database is also

Your password abbreviation is wrong for gfix, too. It is -pa[ssword].
The -p abbreviation in gfix is for something else, used in
recovery of transactions from broken multi-database connections.

You want:

gfix -w async -user USER -password PASSWAORD MYDB.FDB
