      Description

      Currently, the JN does not validate the configured journal directory until it tries to write into it. This is counter-intuitive for users, since they would expect to find out about a misconfiguration at startup time, rather than on first access. Additionally, two testers accidentally configured the journal dir to be a URI, which the code accidentally understood as a relative path (CWD/file:/foo/bar.

      We should validate the config at startup to be an accessible absolute path.
