As I said I don't like introducing additional setup options for this.
We already have the infamous "Primary limit", which was introduced at a time
where the FF cards were unable to receive and record at the same time
(this option will be removed in version 1.5, BTW).

I'll probably take another look at your first patch - maybe I missed
something when I asked whether it would also avoid a non-primary device
if the transfer mode is coming from there.

At any rate, this certainly requires more testing, so I'll do as suggested
by Udo Richter and revoke this change altogether and release version 1.4.2

Just so that people can check this out, I have attached this
final modification.
