Just a drive-by thought: Should we report this to SQLite? Especially if
by distilling the Subversion test we could write a SQLite self-test. I
recall the SQLite team is big on thorough regression testing and so
would likely want to know about this.

(They then might have some influence with the Apple folks, or maybe not,
but that's for them to deal with. It won't change our situation in the
short time with regard to this particular version.)
