[+ Global] Added an option to renderer parameters to put quotes around each list item (instead of around the combined list)

[# Global] Updated to SQLite 3.6.23

[! Client] Fixed a bug that could lead to crashes of the client and weird client behaviour in the server
[! Client] When the client receives a cancel request for a job it has just processed, the cancel will now properly be acknowledged
[! Server] Possible fix for clients hanging at "cancelling" indefinitely (while still rendering new jobs, though)
[# Svr/Rc] The remote client configuration dialog will no longer show empty pools
[! Server] The server would sometimes not pick up pending net jobs if there was an erroneous net job in the queue
