Objects locked after installing patch

We installed the database 9i patch 9.2.0.7. Our applications that were working OK are now locking the objects in row exclusive mode. We understand that there will be a fix in 9.2.0.8 but the patch is not ready. Could you recommend any workaround?

The closest information I can find that describes this situation is that the behavior of select for update was intentionally changed in Oracle release 9.2.0.6 from row share lock to row exclusive lock. This change was made intentionally to address a false deadlock issue while using RAC. I have not found any information regarding a workaround, other than modifying application code.
