In some situations it is handy to warn/error when an option is used that has no effect, when you kinda expect it to. Example: statistics_montecarlo has cfg.correctial. This can be 'tail', 'prob' and 'no'. 'yes' is not an option, even though it is easily expected at the user level.

Changed the status of bugs without a specific owner to UNCONFIRMED. I'll try to replicate these bugs (potentially involving the submitter), and change confirmed bugs to NEW. Boris

Sounds like a sensible thing to do, confirmed.

Suggestion: make an option 'allowedval' instead. In the case of statistics_montecarlo, it makes more sense to specify that only tail/prob/no is allowed. If the only forbidden value=yes, then the user might still specify cfg.correcttail = 'yesplease' or something.
