I'd rather reject the offending 'user' than abort loading the channel and 
'losing' all my correctly configured users.

Does this mean that a typo in any configuration option (that has a known 
set of valid options) will cause all of my IAX2 users to disappear when 
the channel is reloaded?

Does SIP behave the same way?

Thanks in advance,
