Unbroken database

In May our support got a customer alert that his InterBase 7.5 database is broken right after restore. We found that really, even after only metadata restore gfix reports about broken indices on rdb$dependencies and other system tables. Borland responded very quickly, telling that this is gfix error - it does not understand correctly new index structure introduced in ODS 11.2 databases. Hopefuly, gfix does not "fix" these "errors", so database stays correct. This issue have number 240075 in internal Borland's bugtracking system, and will be fixed only in next InterBase version.
Stay tuned.
