 Hi All,
 
 While the suggested fix works, it may be safer to correct the problem by
 setting 'err' in function 'target_write_memory_partial()' itself, as it may be
 called from some other place in the code, with the same nasty effect. BTW, the
 same problem also appears in 'target_read_memory_partial()'.
 I attached a small patch that fixes both functions.
 Regards,
 
 Ivan Djelic
