Thanks, Robert, that explains a lot.  I now understand why some long and 
arcane scripts I saw for syncing Liferea had a lot of SQLite stuff in 
them.  But the killer appears to be the problems with the buggy handling 
of locking on networks.

I'm going to abandon this project.  But I've again been very impressed 
with the generosity shown by folk on this list in spending time and 
effort suggesting solutions and helping to get to the bottom of an 
issue.  Many thanks to everyone who has taken an interest.
