Would be awesome if the second erase algorithm could be default for this chip!

You could also just select the right chip definition :) Your log looks
very much as if you got a MX25L64* with 4 kB sectors (e.g. MX25L6406E
as you wrote) but the chip set definition you chose (MX25L6405) has
64 kB sectors in the smallest eraser.
