Yes, this issue made development of the SQLite module a bit more
"interesting" for me. And I deserved no better for committing changes so
late before beta1.

Anyway, I verified my theory about the SQLite bugs (that's what they are),
and added version checks to the C code and to the test suite, so now
Everything Should Work (*crossing fingers*).

If anything should still fail, I'll ruthlessly blame Anthony, he brought
the idea up of supporting older SQLite versions in the first place :-P
