SQLite 3.40.1, Linux/amd64:

$ sqlite3
Connected to a transient in-memory database.
sqlite> create table t (id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY AUTOINCREMENT);
sqlite> .clone newdb
t... done
sqlite_sequence... Error: object name reserved for internal use: sqlite_sequence
SQL: [CREATE TABLE sqlite_sequence(name,seq)]


Silently skip the sqlite_sequence table, perhaps.

Thanks for reporting this. Fixed here. The sequence table is not exactly skipped, in consideration of its possibly valuable content. But its needless creation is skipped. This is a reasonable-effort kind of thing, without the complexity that could have gone into it.1

  1. ^ If the schema table is corrupt enough to not get replicated by the code present now, there are likely much worse problems than a not-yet-populated sqlite_sequence table.
