Do you know for sure that it was created by this test run and that
it's the file this test was trying to use?  "lsof" might be your
friend here.  Check file permissions on the database too, and the
magic environment variable that overrides the default location of the
SQL database.

If none of that works, and you really want to debug the old code, it's
time for gdb: you'll probably want to put a breakpoint at
C_GenerateKeyPair() then step through to see what's happening.
