 @quotation NOTE
-Persistent memory and the use of MPFR (the @option{-M} option)
-don't mix! If you use @option{-M} then you will get a core dump on the
-second @command{gawk} run.  This may eventually be fixed. But then again,
-it may not.
+If you use MPFR mode (the @option{-M} option) on the first run
+of a program using persistent memory, you @emph{must} continue
+to use it on all subsequent runs.  Similarly, if you don't use @option{-M}
+on the first run, do not use it on any subsequent runs.
+Mixing and matching MPFR mode and regular mode with the same
+backing file will lead to strange results and/or core dumps.
+@command{gawk} does not currently detect such a situation and
+may not do so in the future either.
