tbd_major ... since nearly 7 years :(( actually, it took 4 years to  
get the necessity accepted, then another 2 years playing with  
incomplete suggested fixes and then ...

It's a complex problem, requires

a) additional commit/cancel api on the virtual controls to allow

b) a major cleanup of cell implementations - this part was under way  
(and evolving into the good direction) until Jonathan left
