The latter, I should think, flash!

With the ignition ON, and with the safety switches either in the GO condition or bypassed (as you've done), the success of a bump start depends upon its vigor, relative to the battery condition (IMHO).

Just for kicks; with ignition switch ON, roll 'er down a hill, in maybe 3d gear; pop the clutch and see what happens!
