[Bug 632166] sql backend silently fails and loses data

I've been working on https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=632166 this afternoon. I can reproduce the bug, and I've added (but not yet checked in) a log message with more detail than the g_return_val_if_fail message. There should probably be one for each failure reason.

But to really address this, we need to pop up a message dialog telling the user that the save as didn't go well and that she can't rely on the saved database. The problem is that that's at least one new string to translate. The choices are to break the string freeze (my preference, because I don't think that we should release 2.4.0 with the possibility of screwing up the user's accounts) or take this off the milestone list for 2.4.
