OK, the "fix" will be posted soon. I didn't want to add another module to the 
overhead (File::Temp would be sooooooo nice for what I want), but basically I 
added a loop to go through all of the overlays and confirm you can write to 
at least one of them - and the first one you can write to is the one you use 
in the session. And if you can't write to any of them, we exit with an error, 
because there's not much point in being able to use overlays if you can't 
write to a single one.
