This was working properly with my x64 package, as well as with

You are defining "SQLITE_OS_UNIX" which introduces known interoperability
problems with accesses from the windows side.

Yes, I can now confirm that (the lack of) SQLITE_OS_UNIX is the culprit.

Thoroughly explained here:

I don't see a way out of this trap, where either native Windows loses
out to Cygwin or vice versa, until Cygwin provides some way to request
mandatory locks on a per-process or per-subtree basis.

So you *can't* have your cake and eat it too after all.  What a surprise.

If it's a choice between Cygwin programs functioning correctly (in this case, mtn clone), and allowing interoperability with Windows programs, there is NO QUESTION that the former MUST take priority. Add a `mount -o mand' feature if you wish (or get someone who cares about this to do so), but DON'T BREAK Cygwin programs for the sake of those NOT USING Cygwin.

Please fix sqlite3 accordingly.
