There should not be any danger of data-concurrency problems.
SQLite is an ACID database engine.

When clients are writing to the database, they will prevent
TWS and your backup script from reading.  So hopefully, clients
do not keep transactions open for long periods of time.  TWS
is programmed to retry an SQL request after a few milliseconds
if the first attempt blocks (I think) so it should continue
to work normally as long as the clients don't block for too
long.  You can make your backup script do the same by setting
the ".timeout" parameter to something greater than 0.  For

.timeout 10000
