I am sorry for causing this.

I should have thought about multiple invocations of the test
at the same time (or not) and that /tmp is not a good place to put the 
database into.

I have submitted a follow-up patch to autobuild that stores the database 
in the private directory, hopefully that fixes the issue and the test 
can remain in the list of tests to be executed on each build.

Once again, sorry.
