Yes, pretty much all the code to handle this sort of issue has that
problem in some form.  There's issues with the constraints not getting
seen in time - people had a look at it when we started doing constraints
like this properly.

The symmetric rate setting tries to cover it a bit by enforcing the last
constraint that was seen so you only get the zero problem on first open.
For a lot of applications this actually ends up doing the right thing,
though obviously it's not ideal.
