Oh, it worked for me too - for a while.  It didn't wedge until, I
suspect, the system came under memory pressure.  If I'd written an
amount that's small compared to available RAM before flushing and
unmounting, I very well might not have noticed any problem at all.

Also, your use case was read-mostly, sounds like.  Mine was not.
