Re: Plot holes, inconsistencies, and contradictions v2.

I personally don't see any inconsistencies as far as the Trace goes- it detects magic performed around an underage wizard, but it's possible that the Tom Riddle-era ministry (as Kat_Suki says) mightn't have been the most efficient of organisations. In DH, Harry holds off travelling till his birthday because even Ron and Hermione performing spells around him would have been a giveaway of their location if they did it while he was still underage - at least at the Burrow, there was one underage witch (Ginny) who could provide a decent cover for Harry if the Ministry turned up asking why the Trace was being triggered around the house. As it turned out, they didn't- but it's explainable that way, IMO.
