Still not sure about that... If I check out the version and
just configure / make, I'll get a seemingly working sqlite3.exe, but
I can't compile the testfixture.  How do you configure the build on
Cygwin and how'd you work around the reams of errors in compiling the
testfixture (if you had to do anything)?

When weeding out the "Cygwin is Windows" stuff from, I'll
get past that hurdle and a fairly clean compile of everything (I haven't
checked the whole output, so it may actually be completely clean).  There
are a few test errors that are probably harmless, but the testsuite does
indeed produce a few of the dreaded disk I/O errors that seem to have
serious consequences.  At least during the "big file" test I found that
while the sqlite from Cygwin _does_ place a lock on that file, it isn't
exclusive -- so you can open the file from a Windows application again
or rename it.

So it seems that indeed the locking stuff is what keeps this from
working correctly.  Not sure when I'll find some time to dive into
the sources, but if anybody has some ideas, keep 'em coming.
