I have no reason to believe that there's a non-negligible number of
users out there in the wild using fast-lock or lazy-lock, so whether we
ignore such settings or signal an error for them probably won't make much
difference either way.  I guess the nicer way is to ignore the setting
but emit a message, if you really care.
