There's a risk that this is a case of "best is the enemy of the good".

Rather than fix an issue that can crash a whole box, hold out until the "right thing" is done.

That's a good point, but there's also the argument that it's better to stop and log why, than silently fail and let people try and figure out why something's broken.

I don't think either are great here, so the only real way to fix this is to, well, fix it!
