THe problem may be in SimpleResourceStore::internalSave. By the end of
the method, a lot of work is done to overcome the bug, I may have
missed something though. Ultimatley, what you see seems to be warnings
only (so it should still work fine).

If you find something that needs to be fixed, let me know.

Thanks,
Anselm.
