Comment 6 for bug 117730

We have also run into this problem with our installations. We have over 300 workstations at our university, all have CIFS-mounted home directories. So far we managed to somehow avoid using any applications that used SQLite, but now with Firefox3 using it we are in a very difficult situation.

As a temporary measure we use a custom compiled SQLite library with the -DSQLITE_DISABLE_DIRSYNC=1 flag enabled, as per advice in http://sqlite.org/cvstrac/tktview?tn=1751

Of course this makes all the databases sensitive to data corruption.
