No, I don't think so. I think it's just a libdbd-sqlite3-perl test suite
problem. Its child processes clean up database files while the parent
keeps them open. This used to work with earlier sqlite3 versions but
write locks now seem to do a stat() on the file and fail if it's missing.

I don't think writing to a deleted database file is useful in the real
world, so it should be enough to change the test suite. Patch attached.
