I dropped it since you introduced it ;-)
Dropping it altogether seems to do no harm for live-view but may cause
problems for recordings and/or some plugins (e.g.the infamous
ttxtsubtitles plugin) if there's no signal at once (like a signal
problem or a steerable dish).
I already proposed a possible solution


but, as I said then, I'm not sure it's the correct one.
