I'm quite sure --update doesn't work with sqlite databases. They get
recreated each time AFAICS. In my case, it makes sense, as our Alpha
builders do need a lot of CPU (and time) to create the sqlite database
on their own. The kojihub is a dual cpu intel machine - and is the only
machine doing createrepo - and is very fast in doing so...

If I find some time I'll post the request to work-in sqlite-support into
--update on the correct m/l.
