I can't even start to say ho much I'd love those to go away.
'rescue Object' caused me to waste *days* tracking errors :(

FWIW there was a patch of mine in the thread
[Nitro] [PATCH] Og.setup crash-early

that removed one of those and enhanced diagnostics a little, plus some 
tests. And the new gen should handle errors correctly, I think.
