Actually, let me rephrase myself.

I think that we _should not_ change the test, because it does what it's
supposed to do (catch bugs). In this case, maintainers would be better
using official sqlite-amalgamation, until the bug in the customized SQLite
library shipped with OS X is fixed. The failing test is a proper indication
of this bug.
