A regression on this point was introduced in Jetty 9.3.X, when they refactored how modules are loaded. The code on the 9.2.X branch looks fine: Jetty should log the warnings, but proceed to start anyway.

That's why I didn't notice, I never tried it under 9.3 without just removing the line first to get rid of the noise.

Shib wiki page Jetty93 updated accordingly.

Sounds fine.

Nice find. Maybe we should add some kind of note to the wiki about this. I don't want to add a header to every page or anything, but seems like this has probably bitten people in the past without us knowing.
