Of course, I don't expect the system to resolve this for me; I just
expect it to tell me about it (loudly) so that I get a chance to resolve

My problem is that the "true moves" feature that Ben was talking about
is still no complete solution to the problem, and it is probably not
going to be implemented any time soon. I need a solution now; we are
afraid of losing data.
