Right.

Right...

... and I think you've got a point here!

The reset to nominal value line should be done unconditionally.
I'll move it outside its current block. Thanks for spotting it.

Will move that "bucket local max" management code into a separate
patch as suggested by Peter. Hopefully that should make the logic more
clear and allows me to add some notes in the changelog.
