 We have very little coverage of handling of database errors.

 Mostly this is because it is tricky for the test harness to arrange for
 them to happen, but for the remote backend we could add a way to tell the
 harness to kill the server corresponding to a particular database it
 provided, and at least test cases where the remote backend loses its

 As gp1308 pointed out in #337, the testcases would be fairly similar to
 those in `api_closedb.cc` which test behaviour after an explicit call to
 `close()` on a database.
