On a topic related to this update (that may be out of scope for this bugzilla)
do note that in the release notes for 0.21
( it's written that there's
been a "DB change" so all users must remove the DB files from all their sync
groups. How shall this be handled? Can users be expected to read a release note?
The nice way I guess would be to patch the tool to detect the DB change and
scrap the old DB itself...

Uhoh... c&p really is evil +). Thanks for reporting. Fixed and pushed.

As to the db format. I read about it. I will see if it is possible (= not to
hard) to make a patch to detect the old format. If so I will make an upgrade and
submit it upstream otherwise I will just file an RFE upstream. Thanks so for the
