This is possible. You probably need to recheck your system one more time.

For example let's have 3 libs. Lib A needs Lib B and Lib B needs Lib C. 
If Lib C vanishes and Lib A is not linked with it for the first run 
everything would be fine. But if during the run Lib B gets upgraded and 
old version vanishes Lib A gets broken.

Sphinx of black quartz judge my vow.
