val-permissive-mode not working via unbound-control ?

I tried the following:

service unbound restart
sudo unbound-control set_option val-permissive-mode: yes
dig www.dnssec-failed.org

But that still gives a servfail.

Sprinking various flush_* options also did not seem to help.

Is this a bug or a feature? :)

Setting val-permissive-mode: yes in unbound.conf and restarting
does work as expected.

ps. don't test this using dnssec-tools.org as test.dnssec-tools.org
seems to have lost its DS record so all test domains are insecure
and no longer bogus :P
