I have whitespace-global-mode on and have it set to auto-cleanup on kill.
This stops read-only buffers from being killed, as auto-cleanup tries to
clean them up, gets an error, and aborts the kill.
The old whitespace mode used to check to see if it was being called in a
read-only buffer, and didn't try to clean up under those circumstances.
I'm using Emacs 220.127.116.11, but as far as I can tell the problem still exists
in CVS head.
This problem can be fixed by wrapping the body of whitespace-clean in
(unless buffer-read-only). I don't know if that fix has problems, but it at
least works for me.
