Hard as it may be, you probably should wait to decide upon work-arounds, alternative approaches, feature avoidance or feature reliance. Pre-release code is unstable, lacking the backwards compatibility guarantees that the SQLite project honor, (as do many other projects.)  The pre-release drops are made for improving bug-catching prospects, exposing problems such as you report, and getting feedback on new or enhanced features.
