It seems that some path through the engine startup ends up needing to 
read this property. The question may be, why haven't we followed that 
path in any of our other tests. I think that the template policy should 
mirror the default policy. Here again, we are arming ourselves to handle 
the combination of initial conditions which causes us to read this property.
