I've attached a patch (against current SVN 2.0-ongoing) that should allow
such a session to load. I do not know whether it has any untoward side
effects. I doubt that the read/write permission checks are being done
without a good reason.

This is only a quick and dirty fix; a real solution to the problem will
require more effort. However, if it works, I'd say the problem is most
likely fixable.
