I haven't had much time to check into this. One thing I have noticed is that it seems to occur, almost on demand, if we use IBOConsole to either select or update a number of records in a large database of approx 10Gb size.
I should have a bit more time to check into this shortly.

Subject: [FB-Tracker] Commented: (CORE-3074) Wrong Page type, expected 6 found 5
Dmitry Yemanov commented on CORE-3074:
Neil, any news about facing this issue with recent snapshot builds?
> Wrong Page type, expected 6 found 5
> Key: CORE-3074
> URL: http://tracker.firebirdsql.org/browse/CORE-3074 > Project: Firebird Core
> Issue Type: Bug
> Components: Engine
> Affects Versions: 2.1.4
> Environment: Windows XP SP2/SP3 with Super Server
> Reporter: Neil Pickles
> Attachments: firebird 214 wrong pagetype error screenshot.jpg
> I am seeing a very similar issue to CORE-2616
> The following error appeared this morning when trying to attach to the database.
> Database file appears corrupt (C:\PROGRAM FILES\FIREBIRD\FIREBIRD_2_1\SECURITY2.FDB)
> wrong page type
> page 67 is of wrong type (expected 6, found 5)
> database file appears corrupt (garbage).
> The garbage at the end of the 'database file appears corrupt' message seems to be some random accented characters, you can see them in the error screenshot attached.
> I am using a patched version of v2.1.4 as supplied by Vlad Khorshun to resolve Core-3050. I assumed that the fix for CORE-2616 would be in that version, maybe it is and this is a new issue. The version number of that version is 188.8.131.5214 but has been patched by Vlad without incrementing the version number I think.
> I have previously seen this more frequently in v2.1.3 SS where it was acknowledged as an error but should have been fixed in v2.1.4, but this is the first time I have seen it using the patched v2.1.4 SS I have been using on Windows XP SP2 or SP3. Existing users can use the system fine, it is only new users that see the error until the server gets restarted.
> If I restart the server everything then works fine again.
