Consider the following test case:
CREATE VIRTUAL TABLE rt0 USING rtree(c0, c1, c2); INSERT INTO rt0(c0) VALUES (0), (1), (2); UPDATE rt0 SET c0 = 0 WHERE(SELECT ROW_NUMBER() OVER() FROM rt0); -- database table is locked
Somewhat unexpectedly, the UPDATE results in an error "database table is locked". This is not the case for non-virtual and FTS tables. This potential issue seems to be similar to [56a74875be].

The documentation has been updated here to explain that it is not generally possible to update the content of an R-Tree while simultaneously conducting a scan of that same R-Tree.
