Ok, maybe I need to ask you first what the original block of code
intended to achieve. The TRM I have is very terse and I don't find any
explanation there. The battery of tests I have pass just fine without

Yes, this function is currently returning false when the pageflip has
been completed but the plan has been already disabled.

If you have any different idea of how to fix this bug, please share.
