That feels more like a "workaround" than a "fix" to me.  If we were going
that route, we might as well remove the internal flag to the pager since
most everything will be allocated anyway.

Of course, in the current method you get 'Okay.' and it might not do
anything.  You'll need to check what you reloaded to see that it's really
there.  I thought about making it say _who_ was reading it (to help: force
X q) but the idea slipped my mind at the time.
