Hi Graham,
Late to this one but there is indeed a new property named "status" which is
why your script now fails.  Unfortunately, can't tell what it's used for
since there's no dictionary entry for it.  About to file a bug report for

lcSQL Software <http://www.lcsql.com>
Home of lcStackBrowser <http://www.lcsql.com/lcstackbrowser.html> and
SQLiteAdmin <http://www.lcsql.com/sqliteadmin.html>
