You are right; --delay-key-write didn't do anything in MySQL 3.23.7.
Here is a fix for this:
*** /my/monty/master/mysql-3.23.7-alpha/sql/mysqld.cc Thu Dec 2 03:59:37 1999
--- ./mysqld.cc Tue Dec 28 01:58:25 1999
*** 2463,2468 ****
--- 2473,2479 ----
fprintf(stderr,"%s: Unrecognized option: %c\n",my_progname,c);
The above fix will be included in MySQL 3.23.8
