Please describe the problem.

After initializing an empty new v7 repo in a remote NTFS drive from linux mounted via CIFS, adding new file fails with a SQLite3 error. Using a v5 repo in direct mode works (with git annex init --version=5).

What steps will reproduce the problem?

$ git init .
$ git annex init test
$ git annex add file1
add file1
git-annex: SQLite3 returned ErrorBusy while attempting to perform close: unable to close due to unfinalized statements or unfinished backups.
failed
git-annex: add: 1 failed

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

Ubuntu 19.04

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

When initializing the repo with v5 git-annex (git annex init --version=5 test), then the legacy direct mode is used and file addition works well.
