-noFilePatching     Ensures that only PBOs are loaded and NO unpacked data. 


So remove this command and replace it with -filePatching and disable it by default.

This is basically for developers and should be opt-in.

The normal user is not aware of this system.
When they unpack pbos and do not remove them from the addons folder,
the signature system will activate.

Voted up.

This ticket definitely needs some dev attention, as the issue can be (and has been) the cause of problems that are very difficult to troubleshoot.
