Missing path for server.upload-dirs is not reported, then uploads fail.
Hi, yesterday I found an issue, or maybe two: I installed 1.4.32 in place of 1.4.28, and in the make install the directory pointed by server.upload-dirs got deleted from the file system (first issue). I started lighttpd and it worked normally, but uploads of large files began to fail (second issue). It was a headache to discover that the path was missing and causing this behavior. My request is that lighttpd should report those missing paths at start (or when you do the lighttpd -t test), or event don't start at all, to avoid this kind of issues.

- I don't think we have any "install" directives that would create or even delete such special directories.
- The default is "/var/tmp" (if no paths are configured); it might be nice to have a warning at startup that the configured directories are not existing.
