> Currently, the JN does not validate the configured journal directory until it tries to
write into it. This is counter-intuitive for users, since they would expect to find out about
a misconfiguration at startup time, rather than on first access. Additionally, two testers
accidentally configured the journal dir to be a URI, which the code accidentally understood
as a relative path ({{CWD/file:/foo/bar}}.
> We should validate the config at startup to be an accessible absolute path.
