I do not believe I have any disk problem. Disk Utility shows no problem. I am able to copy the registry file just fine without any I/O errors.
I find it entirely likely that MacPorts has corrupted the SQLite registry. I feel the MacPorts SQLite registry code may still be somewhat brittle, as I have experienced numerous other odd SQLite registry errors that I have not yet reported, and the SQLite registry is still new and has not been used by all users until the flat registry was removed in MacPorts 2.
