Item9257: There are configuration settings that are only saved second time through configure
even though I changed nothing, when i go save a second time I get...
the ?DEBUG=asd= url param i added for this shows something somewhat interesting about the above that I didn't know
the reduced UI only runs the reduced set of checkers - meaning that there are 'NOT SET' values still... or at least, values that will be wrong for the platform...
This makes it plausible to have a misconfiguration initially.
And brings up another idea i had - if UI.pm detects that the cfg is not fully complete, we could redirect to configure...

When configure is run for the first time (before LocalSite
has been created) then only the first section of Foswiki.spec is loaded,
and thus checkers only for that subset will be created and run. This means
that on some platforms, initial configuration is a two-phase process, as
the initial path checks are performed on the first run, and only on the second run, when
.cfg exists, are the other checkers built and invoked. This
needs improving on, but I don't think it's Urgent, so regrading as Normal and confirming.
OS and DetailedOS
arguably ought to be in that first section.
