Interesting.  We probably detached from the console before it asked, or the
new schema really fixed things.

In any case, Win32 really never supported passphrases well, you are
advised to remove them.  The problem gets very serious as a service, since
when the parent process refuses to start 'on time', the service is terminated.
That window is only two minutes, plenty in CPU time, but insufficient for
a human being who stepped away for coffee.

a case-by-case basis,

It should, please identify missing files/directories and I'll get the changes
committed today.

Shouldn't matter (except for the passphrase issue.)
