There is a bz open, and you should ask for that to be linked to one of
your support cases, if it hasn't already been. I thought we'd concluded
though that this didn't actually affect your particular workload.

Yes, I've not forgotten this. I've been working on some similar issues
recently and I'll explore this more fully once I'm done with the
writeback side of things.

Yes, it might well be, so we should certainly look into it. Again
though, please ensure that you raise this through support so that (a) it
doesn't get missed by accident and (b) that we are all in the loop. If
there are not tickets open for these, then we need to resolve that in
order to push this forward,
