I'm not sure why I'm getting this error, because as far as I can see, I'm not keeping any transactions open longer than I have to in the auth code. Does anyone have an idea what might be wrong and how to fix it?

This is a problem of hdbc-sqlite package, author think, than it can't work correctly without open 
transaction, so just commit after open database or modify hdbc-sqlite like this:
