Not at all. If anything's late, it's our addressing this after decades.

Neither of those sounds particularly pleasant. In fact, they sound like
regressions. So, just to clarify:

 - Before the proposed patch, simultaneous transfers were possible, and
   now they're not.

 - Before this patch, unresponsiveness wasn't a thing (crashing and
   scary messages aside), but now it is.

I'll admit to callously not even considering the first, and I might have
trouble reproducing the second but will certainly give it a go.

You're welcome, but hopefully we™ can do better (amid tackling ERC's
rather pressing, even borderline existential problems).
