In C API, do prepared statements of simple inserts execute repeatedly even if not reset?
I came across a similar question a few days ago. The answer as to why this works is in the source...

/* We used to require that sqlite3_reset() be called before retrying
** sqlite3_step() after any error or after SQLITE_DONE.  But beginning
** with version 3.7.0, we changed this so that sqlite3_reset() would
** be called automatically instead of throwing the SQLITE_MISUSE error.
** This "automatic-reset" change is not technically an incompatibility, 
** since any application that receives an SQLITE_MISUSE is broken by
** definition.
