Thanks for the investigative reporting. :)
From my perspective, though, I have a new problem, which is scraping
together enough free time to set up the SQLite test suite on a machine
here and set it to grinding, so I can exonerate the recent .15.1 build.
(This in response to David's report that the .15.1 builds cause Cygwin
svn to fail *its* test suite.)
Until someone does that, even with a POSIX exponential backoff patch in
hand, I still can't move forward because I don't know if I'm just
trading one problem for another.
I'm also not entirely sure it's kosher for Cygwin SQLite to have
exponential lock retry backoffs when the Linux build doesn't. And as
I've said before, I haven't yet had any luck getting D. Richard Hipp to
pay attention to even trivial patches to SQLite. If that continues, it
means Cygwin SQLite would be different in this way if I apply the patch
to my package builds.
