SQLite3::CorruptException: database disk image is malformed

Reported by Sam Ruby | December 7th, 2010 @ 08:25 PM | in 3.1

I have a highly repeatable scenario which produces the exception mentioned above.

It happens on 3.1 master, but not on 3-0-stable. It happens on some of my machines, but not all of them. It happens when I try it "manually" by visiting the application using a browser. Changing the scenario slightly changes the frequency of the problem -- simply adding a call to "rake test" or removing pagination or even mail can make the problem occur less frequently.

I've posted the scenario and a snapshot of the application just before the failure online:

To reproduce:

  • download and unpack either the zip or tgz file
  • edit Gemfile, and modify the paths
  • bundle install
  • rake db:migrate db:seed
  • rails server
  • visit the root page (localhost:3000)
  • click on the first Add to Cart button, then Checkout; then Place Order
