Max OS X launchctl load "nothing found to load"

If you are getting:

bash# launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.smarden.runit.plist 
nothing found to load

but things work fine when you

bash# launchctl load -F /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.smarden.runit.plist 

Make sure you don't have Disabled set to true in the plist and that your app is not marked disabled in:

/private/var/db/launchd.db/com.apple.launchd/overrides.plist

which happens if your app has restarted a bit too much in the past.
