Not really :). I thought the same when writing the patch as it's fully possible although extremely unlikely that we'd start a VM with invalid configuration. Given that we were doing it like this for quite some while and it would require a more invasive refactoring of the code I just decided to drop the code altogether. > ACK for what's here Thanks, I'll go with this version currently, since it keeps the semantics present for a rather long time.
