That's what happens since 0.6.1 or so, IIRC - I committed a fix for that
in 0.6.x to make it not segfault but generate the registry instead if it
was missing. If you're still having troubles here, please let us know.
It might not do this for registry updates, which is probably the same

And yeah, I do agree. ;).
