I sent a patch on the bml layer in my first e-mail. We will apply it on
our tree, but as always we're trying to send patches back to open-source
(that was not my intent to start such a debate).

If you use my patch, you still have no choice. Errors on BTLs lead to an
immediate stop instead of trying to continue (and crash).

If someone wants to go further on this, then that's great. If nobody does,
I think you should take my patch. Maybe it's not the best solution, but
it's still better than the current state.
