You need to use tdb_runtime_check_for_robust_mutexes() before using
TDB_MUTEX_LOCKING. Otherwise tdb_open_ex will fail instead of
ignoring TDB_MUTEX_LOCKING (as the early development version did).

You should use that instead of #ifdef USE_TDB_MUTEX_LOCKING

Mutex support is a runtime decision not a configure time decision any more.

Please test with and without '--disable-tdb-mutex-locking'.
