Temporary deactivation (TPM_SetTempDeactivated) of the TPM will be done 
in the error path of functions that should never fail. The error code 
will come up in Forth code mostly to be able to display an error 
message.  If this happens this would indicate that something is wrong 
with the TPM itself and the user could either try to reboot the VM or 
define a new VM to see whether the error occurs there as well and if 
nothing else works file a bug report...
