As far as I can tell from the logs, this was happening right after inspecting 
the schema (metadata) to determine what version the schema is.  For a while 
we didn't keep an explicit version number table anywhere in the database, so 
for older databases we guess the schema version by looking at what tables are 

Right before closing the Connection we checkpoint (I can't remember why but 
there was a very good reason for it.)  Though in this case obviously no 
changes had actually occurred to the database.

So in some sense the error was fatal (it did throw an exception, afterall, 
which we can catch but not necessarily know what to do with afterwards, so we 
throw an exception ourselves.)  But since no modifications actually occurred, 
I guess there isn't any real harm.

I'll see if I can get access to the derby.log file.

Other than that, could this perhaps be a permissions issue?  One of the things 
customers consistently fail at is that they go and haphazardly modify the 
permissions on files without knowing what will happen, rather than just 
blocking access to the top-level directory entirely, resulting in a directory 
with mixed permissions. :-/
