Right.  The original assumption was that people don't restart production
servers, so startup-transient behavior isn't very important.  But that's
obviously not a great assumption.  It seemed expedient at the time
(partly because I wasn't sure FSM would fly at all) --- but now it's
time to go back and fill in the holes.
