I have a problem with qgis.db. Every time Qgis is started, i get an error message: 'Update of view in private qgis.db failed. table vw_srs already exists'. As i understand, its because on every startup qgis application checks wheteher there is a qgis.db and whether it can update this view. Because of my user permissions it fails and i get an error message. So far i haven't found a way to disable this checking and updating. Is there a way? If not, then it would be nice to have as an option.

Thanks for the quick response.
This database is for bookmarks and custom SRS'es, right? If i dont use bookmarks and custom SRS'es, then i actually don't need this database, right? Or, at least, i don't have to check the db every time.
And for the rest of the folder, if everything is already set up by a poweruser, then there's no need for write access on the regular user level.
So, i still think it's a good idea not to check qgis.db on startup. At least as an option.
