Agreed--which I why I never said otherwise.
But I thought the user might want to actually use his system before
someone debugs the segfault, commits a fix, tests it in unstable for a
week, backports it to 0.24-fixes, then the distro packages up the fixed
version, and the user finally pulls that update. (Though, IMHO, it
should just exit when improperly configured--meaning that proper
configuration will be required, even then. :)
