I agree with Paul here: as of today, I prefer a hard error.

However, I'll have to have a closer a look at this, and see if I can find some 
nice way to address this issue.  But I'm running out of Free Software time, I 
have to change my hat now.

I had never heard of Haiku.  Is there any chance they will fix that problem?
