Endianness issue in Firebird driver (bug 72987)

The basic idea to solve this bug:
was to replace .fdb file stored inside the .odb file with firebird's archive
file format. The problem is that the embedded server seems to be not fully
on Linux (http://www.firebirdsql.org/manual/ufb-cs-embedded.html).
If I understand correctly, ours is actually not an "embedded server", but a
"classic server",
which validates every login against the security database (security2.fdb).

The backup of the database can be made through the Service API of
We need to pass a user (and a password). The Service Manager tries to
our user by checking the "/usr/local/firebird/security2.fdb" security db,
which does not
exist in our case.

An idea was (if I got it right) to override path above to our libreoffice
install directory,
so we could have a default security database that the Service Manager can
check. I went
through the docs and had a look at the firebird source code, and it seems
to me that unfortunately
we cannot override it at all.

I hope you have a good idea for that.
