Well, I'd wished to say that the beginner's mistake would have been
running something with a registry as host system, but then with the
advent of systemd as a Linux system component, the comparison has become
lots murkier.  Managing conflicts has become black magic.  Linux tends
to work more reliable magic, but either way there is too much happening
behind the scenes.
