Since everything is a "dbspace", including SYSTEM, TRANSLOG and TEMPORARY, the following paragraph describing the behavior of dbunload -an is confusing; I believe it is only talking about secondary dbspaces; i.e., none of the above:

"When the new database is created, the dbspace file names have an R appended to the file name to prevent file name conflicts if the dbspace file for the new database is created in the same directory as the dbspace for the original database. For example, if an unloaded database has a dbspace called library in the file library.db, then the library dbspace for the new database is library.dbR."
