We practice that if the aircraft is in a critical stage of flight, T/O or
LDG or otherwise near to the ground that if the engine is developing thrust
and that thrust is required to get the aircraft to a safer altitude then
we use it and shut it down at a more appropriate time.  That later time
may allow us to determine if it was a pneumatic leak.  If the engine
hiccups at all, all bets are off.
