Co-posting to python-dev in the hope of getting help of people verifying 
my suspicion ...

That guess was wrong. The failed sqlite3 tests come from an old SQLite 
version being linked against. Until recently, SQLite was buggy and it 
was only fixed in


that callbacks can throw errors that are usefully returned to the 
original caller.

The tests for the sqlite3 module currently assume a recent version 
SQLite (3.3.something). Otherwise some tests will fail.

Still, it can be built against any SQLite 3 release.

Can somebody please also verify if the malloc/free error message goes 
away (it really only happened on Mac, didn't it?) if you upgrade SQLite 
to the latest version on the build host?
