There is nothing wrong with running native windoze programs under Cygwin, 
but running Windoze programs is not the purpose of Cygwin/Posix environment; 
that is the purpose of Windoze.  When the Windoze programs don't work and 
play well in the Posix environment; it's to bad they violate Posix's 
environment but no reason why Cygwin should abandon its purpose just so a 
couple of rude people won't have to do the difficult work of porting a 
package.  If SQLite has a *inux version available, that should use the 
proper Poxix locking anyway.  Is there some reason you can't you use this 
version as the basis for your port?
