That's the second time I hear you talking about running the test suite
for SQLite… where'd you get that from?

I've seen those particular tests grind to a halt or fail in my testing
as well, with earlier versions of both subversion and sqlite.  I'm not
sure what is going on there, but it used to get better with newer
versions of BerkeleyDB IIRC.

As I said, it would be easier to effectively suppress the retry feature
in the Windows-like build to see if the same error happens before making
a foray into adding that feature to (POSIX && CYGWIN).

If Linux had a Win32 daemon that kept locking away files without telling
it would probably need this as well.
