Saved a change.

There's a discussion on the Debian Users' mail list (I don't use Debian
but lurk there) right now about someone not seeing changes made to files
being written to disks.

People are pointing out that cacheing and delayed-write may mean that the
disk itself isn't updated, but the changed data is being held in an OS-
controlled cache.  Applications running under that OS should have I/O
requests satisfied from the cache, regardless of what's on the disk.
There, some fingers are being pointed at the text editor itself, for
maybe not writing data out (I'm not suggesting SE is at fault).

Are you using a 'real' RO machine or an emulated one?

Is the disk concerned attached to the machine or eg on a network share?
