Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Works as designed.

The "-t" option is to be able to test a new "include" file for potential
typos or conflicts, *before* it is included, so it is parsed in addition
to the default config file.

If you want to check an alternative "full" config file,
you can explicitly give /dev/null as config file, and the to-be-testet
file as test file. Which is the same as not using -t at all, but just
using the config file as is, explicitly.

cp /etc/drbd.conf  /tmp/my_test_config.conf

drbdadm -t /tmp/my_test_config.conf dump
	# will give conflicts
drbdadm -c /dev/null -t /tmp/my_test_config.conf dump
	# should work, but is just a strange way of saying
drbdadm -c /tmp/my_test_config.conf dump
	# which may be what you actually want to use.
