I will take care of reporting this to SQLite authors.
This is quite an issue, as this bug caused by a custom patch makes SQLite
(a _derivative_ distributed under the name of SQLite, to be precise) unusable
in a typical reader-writer case. In the described case, the vanilla version
would have blocked in a retry loop allowing for the reader to finish its work
and notifying the API user via xBusyHandler(), but the patch causes it to
fail immediately, and this prevents concurrency.

To my mind, the test is of less concern, compared to the issue itself.
I would prefer to keep the test catching this bug for now, unless that
causes severe issues for maintainers. If that happens, we could add a
