Ahh. Yes, then I agree with you. The current behavior is clearly
insane in the presense of an unknown connector status.

So if the higher levels are eventually fixed to say "if one input is
'unknown' and another is 'connected', we'll assume 'unknown' means
'not connected'", then we can re-apply that patch.

As it is, it's apparently a disaster to reply 'unknown' in this situation.
