But that's not quite correct.  Setting debugflags to 16 allows writes to 
a partition that's mounted, something that should not normally be 
needed.  It will give an error instead of allowing writes in that case. 
So if writes succeeded, that wasn't the problem.

'gpart -F destroy {device}' may help recover the CF cards.
