SQLite "attach database" not working in Honeycomb

 My app makes extensive use of this:

sqldb.execSQL("ATTACH DATABASE ? AS mydb", new String[] { dbFile.getPath() 

where the dbFile is stored on External Storage.

The Honeycomb emulator confirms the File.exists() but when I query the 
database, it's as if the database hasn't been attached at all.

Also SQLiteDatabase.getAttachedDbs() only returns <"main", ":memory:"> - 
i.e. a single-item list.

The code works fine in 1.5 through to 2.3.

And I'm not the only one experiencing this:

 In Honeycomb, using bindargs for 'Attach' sql statement doesn't seem
to work.

try this instead
    db.execSQL("attach database '" + newDb + "' as newDb");

this should work.

files a bug to address this. thanks for posting this question. (also
answered this question on 
again thanks for the pointer)
