manage.py syncdb will fail silently when `DATABASE_NAME' is empty with sqlite3

Description

When leaving 'DATABASE_NAME' empty in our default settings.py, running `python manage.py syncdb' will fail silently. Leaving the users with an impression of successful creation of databases.

example:

[self@web19 myproject]$ python manage.py syncdb
Creating table auth_message
Creating table auth_group
Creating table auth_user
Creating table auth_permission
Creating table django_content_type
Creating table django_session
Creating table django_site
Creating table polls_poll
Creating table polls_choice

Could someone confirm this behavior is also present in versions greater than 0.96?

I've just added a patch to check for this and throw and ImproperlyConfigured error if there is no DATABASE_NAME. I can't think of a way to write a regression test for this, so I'll leave that to the experts!
