I forget where I read it, but SQLite does NOT support concurrent access to the 
same datafile due to the way it operates.  If you're using a tool in a manner 
that isn't supported by the tool, then you should expect problems to happen - 
it's like using a 50 lb hammer to adjust your watch.  

I'd almost say that digiKam should execute an exclusive file lock on the 
database when it boots up, and pray that your concurrent access method passes 
on the exclusive lock information.
