There appears to be an inconsistency between the behavior of back-shell and that
of all the remaining backends with respect to access checking for the modify
operation; back-shell appears to check for write permission to the entry
pseudo-attribute before attempting to send modifications to the underlying
script. In general, access checking is pretty loose in preparing write
operations for back-shell, but this may be regarded as necessary because of its
intrinsic design limitations. However, the highlighted behavior appears to be
more over-restrictiveand inconsistent.
