If you were using the same handle in multiple threads, then your
applications never have worked on RedHat 9.  They might seem to
worked, but that would only be because you have not tested them
sufficiently to find the subtle failures.  Normally the problem
only appears under high load.

You can avoid these kinds of problems in the future by statically
linking against SQLite so that you are not beholden to whatever
version of SQLite is shipped with the distribution.

Not really.  The documentation did not bring this point out
at all - it was ambiguously worded.  (That has since been
changed.)  We did not realize how bad the situation was until
people started reporting problems on RedHat 9.  See
