Hi Jacob,

I'm sorry for the late response first of all.  I hope you didn't

This is apparently strange behavior.  Are you on Windows platform?  I once
saw that Windows notifies the VM that the write buffer is ready too lately.
If you can reproduce this problem easily, we could test it by ourselves (if
setting up the testing process is easy enough).
