My understanding was that SQLite only did locking for writes, i.e. it's
possible for multiple threads to be reading at the same time. In fact this
is FAQ #5 at :

     "SQLite allows multiple processes to have the database file open at
     once, and for multiple processes to read the database at once. When
     any process wants to write, it must lock the entire database file
     for the duration of its update. But that normally only takes a few
     milliseconds. Other processes just wait on the writer to finish then
     continue about their business."

Is trac doing writes for things that should only be reads, perhaps?

I don't; to me an occasional error message is better than not working
at all.
