[ZendTo] upgrade missing sqlite3 schema

Hello Jules,
Indeed I did find out that the cronjob did just that and I executed it
What strikes me a bit odd is the way the schema is printed after the
change. On one machine, I got this schema after the cleanup run:

sqlite> .schema dropoff
CREATE TABLE dropoff (
  claimID             character varying(16) not null,
  claimPasscode       character varying(16),

  authorizedUser      character varying(16),

  senderName          character varying(32) not null,
  senderOrganization  character varying(32),
  senderEmail         text not null,
  senderIP            character varying(255) not null,
  confirmDelivery     boolean default FALSE,
  created             timestamp with time zone not null,
  note                text
, lifeseconds int NOT NULL DEFAULT 0, subject character varying(500)
CREATE INDEX dropoff_claimID_index ON dropoff(claimID);
=> there seems to be a missing newline and another newline is before
the ', lifeseconds". That doesn't seem to hamper with the
functionality of zendto in this case

=> I had another system following the same update version path which
didn't have the strange output of the dropoff schema BUT in that case,
there was the previously posted error when making a dropoff and that's
the system where I ran the manually changed export-import of the
sqlite db.

This is the output from the cleanup script, nothing is mentioned on
the change of the schema however it could be the case that the cronjob
of cleanup got there before I ran it manually:

#> /usr/bin/php /opt/zendto/sbin/cleanup.php /opt/zendto/config/preferences.php

Cleanup of ZendTo for preference file:

Updating database schema
Gathering expired dropoffs
- Removing [<CLAIMID>] <USER> <NAME> <<User.Name>@<address.example>>

NSSDropbox Warn recipients about dropoffs close to expiry.
Purging orphaned dropoffs:
No orphans found.

Purging old sender verification data:
Purging old request data:
