Hello Arran,

Indeed, this is quite common in the case of an sqlite setup from within an application.

May I suggest to anyway slightly adjust that comment appearing in raddb/mods-available/sql:

	# Database table configuration for everything except Oracle
	radius_db = "radius"

Put that way, it could be understood that the radius_db setting might have some role with sqlite's setup.

And such an ambiguity may be re-enforced by the fact that the value of radius_db isn't really a true don't care, even with sqlite; for example, log messages such as

	<info> rlm_sql (sql): Attempting to connect to database "my great db"

are liable be emitted.
