Firstly, thanks for the possible explanation. I am glad to see that
they have fixed that problem. However I am curious about this
suggested solution.

If the problem and fix only relate to the connection to the database
(and whether the file is marked exclusive or not), then there should
not be any difference in the file itself. So backup/restore should
not make any difference - unless of course those users have corrupt
databases already, in which case gbak may not help anyway.

(Not to say that I think backup/restore is not a good idea. I think
it probably is a very good idea, if only to sure that you have
reliable backup of the database before proceeding with RC1.)

I may be getting off topic, it just struck me as odd.
