A distinctive feature of SQLite is that it is in-process and working on a single file. At the same time it is a real database that supports transactions and ensures atomicity. What you see above is SQLite working, it needs to use file locking and journaling to fulfill its guarantees. And you see why we do not support keeping the SQLite DB on an NFS share.

Good news 1: In 0.10, you will be able to place the db in a different place than your pictures (in theory, needs to be implemented)
Good news 2: We now use Qt SQL module, which makes it easier to support MySQL in the future. Pending a lot of problems with SQL incompatibilities.
