There should be some kind of message printed in the logs, but sometimes
its not exactly obvious.  The message you probably got was "No category
context for line X of extensions.conf"

I uncovered the fact that it drops everything when working on a memory
leak related to config parsing.  There needs to be a decision made about
how we handle these cases.  Do we assume that if theres a bad line that
the whole file is junk?  Should we just ignore invalid lines?  Maybe
process everything up to the error and ignore the rest?

I'm not sure what the right answer is.
