The following script generates a corrupt database file:

CREATE TABLE t1(ii INT);
CREATE TABLE t2(tt TEXT PRIMARY KEY, ss);
CREATE TRIGGER t1_ai AFTER INSERT ON t1 BEGIN
  INSERT INTO t2(tt) VALUES(new.ii);
END;
CREATE TRIGGER t2_ai AFTER INSERT ON t2 BEGIN
  UPDATE t2 SET ss = 4;
END;
INSERT INTO t1(ii) VALUES('1');
PRAGMA integrity_check;

This problem appears to have been introduced on 2014-08-23 (version 3.8.7) by check-in [25f2246be404f38b].

In order for this bug to strike, one must do an INSERT into a table that has an index with a TEXT key, and two nested triggers on that table must convert the key value from TEXT to INTEGER and back to TEXT again.

Any index corruption that does occur because of this bug can be fixed by running REINDEX.
