I can't find any on google either.

Does anyone else have such an example to share ?

Yes, this is the case. So tell me if I understand correctly :

  - My app tries to do the modification to the server it is bound to,
    which is the slave.
  - This fails AND automatic referral handling is not activated because   
    I've not coded anything special to handle referrals.
  - Then the exception is about authentication because stronger
    credentials would be needed to write to the slave.
Am I correct ?    

Thanks in advance
