If 'agrees' with all the training examples, then indeed the algorithm will try to scale it up to get the value of the logistic function closer to a hard threshold.
Thank you for this comment - I finally have some idea what I'm seeing in the homework. This point is worth stressing: the scale of w determines the sharpness of the threshold.
