A config file merge into an existing config may fail with "unknown-property" message.


All releases and modules are affected.


This can occur when you are doing a config file merge. The error encountered was with a parameter called "built-in enabled".


The offending parameter may be deleted from the merge file, however this may result in the value for the deleted parameter not set correctly in the existing config.
