Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Very good to know!

"Both nodes primary" is an absolute error condition, basically. (To
check integrity, you should have went secondary/secondary and then
compared md5sums of the backing store.)

New territory, probably not much used yet.

In any case, your bugs are valid, however I'm happy that all they
amounted to is a) in unlikely paths, and b) annoying log messages and no
data corruption, not even a crash. That's not quite perfect yet, but
already rather close and not a real show-stopper.
