Thanks for all the changes, the patch looks much better.

I did not look at 70e806e4e645 in detail until now. That commit had the
'write protect trick' which was removed in subsequent commits. It took me
a bit of git history tracking to figure out the state of that code today and
the reasons for the subsequent changes. I guess that was a good way to
educate me. :)
