Package: gdal-bin
Version: 1.10.1+dfsg-5+b1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The following command works and creates rat_boxes.sqlite:
   ogr2ogr -f "SQLite" rat_boxes.sqlite rat_boxes.xml

.... however the following command will continue indefinitely, aparently doing 
   ogr2ogr -f "SQLite" rat_boxes.sqlite rat_boxes.xml -dsco SPATIALITE=YES

when interrupted both a .sqlite and a .sqlite-journal file is present.

This is a recent problem as this worked a month or so back.

libspatialite5 (4.1.1-9), spatialite-bin (4.1.1-4) libspatialite3 (3.1.0-rc2-2) 
are installed

Although this is being reported from x86_64, the same problem exists on i386.

The issue with the long time it takes to populate the spatial_ref_sys
table was reported on the QGIS list today, and based on the response of
the SpatiaLite author it looks like this is a known issue but not a bug,
