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.
