Do you know of any other characters that make SQLite/larch die?

Thanks for your help and for a great tool!

Thanks for the report and the debug output; that's very helpful.

For now, the quickest workaround will probably be to just change the
label so you can continue with your migration. I'll log this as a bug
and investigate. In theory this should work fine, but it seems like
SQLite isn't pleased with that character for some reason.
