I tried to reproduce here, and I don't see it. However, your error reporting
is very convincing, so the problem is probably real.

Can you send me your pdns-test.db? That would make life a lot easier.

Also, can you tell me which version of sqlite you compile against?

This is an error we used to let pass by w/o shutting down. It turns out that
it causes subsequent unrelated problems if you do that, which is why we
terminate immediately when we see this, so we get helpful email messages
like this ;-)

It is powerdns in all likelihood. Please send a sqlite3 database that
exhibits the problem.
