Just played around a little with those settings: set transaction's and
queries' ReadOnly to false again, and queries' RequestLive to true.

Ran the app -> no problem whatsoever connecting and browsing using
this select-only role.

I could also edit fields in the grids. Only upon _posting_ I get the
ISC error 335544352:
no permission for update/write access to table BLAH
...which is exactly what one would expect.

This *does* leave me wondering about the abovementioned
trial-and-error process though.

Oh, well.
