[OpenSIPS-Users] socket_info field in active_watchers

I was wondering why the active_watchers table includes a field for
socket_info. Checks against values stored in this field during startup are
causing me problems. I have a pair of OpenSIPS servers arranged for High
Availability and using a shared Virtual IP address. Only one of the servers
will have the VIP assigned at a given time. If I try to restart the OpenSIPS
service on the other server, it will not start because it detects invalid
socket information in the Presence module:

2014-01-09 16:18:05  ERROR:presence:restore_db_subs: bad format for stored
sockinfo string
2014-01-09 16:18:05  ERROR:presence:mod_init: restoring subscribe info from
2014-01-09 16:18:05  ERROR:core:init_mod: failed to initialize module
2014-01-09 16:18:05  ERROR:core:main: error while initializing modules

Is there any way of disabling the check of this value during startup or of
making it non-fatal?
If I cleared all values in the socket_info field in the database just before
restarting, would it allow the restart to complete but maybe break presence?
