The spec says:

	• Once the component config- uration is deactivated or fails to activate due to an exception,
SCR must unbind all the component's bound services and discard all references to the component
instance associated with the activation. 

Note that this doesn’t disable the component or unregister any services it may be exposing,
because the exception may be highly transient, and e.g. the next time someone gets the service
all may work smoothly and activate succeed.

I don’t know what version of ds you are “stuck” with, at some point in the distant past
I think that an exception on activation did something like disabling the component.  Due to
all the cool new 1.3 features you should use the latest release 2.0 but the previous release
may have also had the cardinality.minimum support… but don’t quote me :-)
