This update fixes a large number of issues in many different areas.
None of the fixes are really critical, not even the "readonly mode
bypass" which is more of an annoyance than a security issue, and not
many are recent regressions, but all put together they do make this a
rather large bug fix release. Updating is strongly recommended.
