WriteBatch.Flush panics if called twice

Moved from GitHub badger/1394

Posted by mvdan:

I understand that flushing twice doesn’t make sense, since a batch can only be flushed once, but the second call should error with a helpful message instead of panicking.

Flush after Cancel similarly panics.

Oh. I would have noticed and likely reviewed the change if an issue tracker was actually used for bugs. The forum doesn’t integrate at all with PRs, and I’m entirely too late now.

Understood. Going forward we can post our PRs before they are merged. I will communicate that with the team. thanks for bringing this up. Please PM me directly if you want to reopen the issue. I am closing it for now.
