>How did you know you were still on belay?

Because I trust my belayer not to take me off mid route or unless told to!! Which is your point all along - but I was backing the other side of the story, because of the examples of climbing with completely unknown people, etc etc.

Also - and this is not a minor point - the very act of holding onto the other side 'lead' rope, on a long pitch with a bit of drag, is that if the belayer HAS in fact done a runner, you can control your own decent for a while. However, I don't want to labour on it - nowhere is this actually recommended, and I can only remember bothering to do it on very rare occasions - but still, in the circumstances it just made sense.
