mdb_txn_commit(txn which made no changes) does not mdb_env_sync(),
but lmdb.h says several times that Commit flushes buffers to disk.
My feeling is that this is a quirk the user should not need to
know about, and it's cleaner to sy r rather than to document it.
OTOH I don't know if "fast commit of no-change txns" is a feature
which someone expects to work, and if sync can be expensive even
when there is no new data to flush. (I don't know what BDB does.)
