[erlang-questions] mnesia:dirty_update_counter and replicated tables

There hasn't been any discussion of mnesia:dirty_update_counter here
in quite a while.
Looking through my archive, I didn't find a definite answer. Is
mnesia:dirty_update_counter safe to use when the underlying 'set'
table is replicated? If I use mnesia:dirty_update_counter on the same
counter on two different Mnesia nodes, would I ever be unpleasantly
The flow seems to go through the transaction manager, which bodes well
for multi-node safety? Umrfl, it's too late to be reading Mnesia
code. It will be a good learning exercise to continue my reading, but
in the meantime ... is there a quick'ish answer from a kind soul?
Or will a tormenting soul tell me to use tracing and the 'dbg' module
to trace the path for myself? :-)
