True its an odd behavior - the point just was to change the actual behavior
as little from current state as one might expect. Anywa - will fix it up
then and resend - in this particular case it really makes little
difference - assuming that both the minimum and maximum value were
suitable to ensure that the writes had compled or it was actually a failure.
