Re: Major (un)ordered file code Oops...

  Oops indeed.  Patch applied.

	No, with DB files there is reliable way to update them
	without need to restart the routers.  Similar methods
	are possible with (un)ordered, but rarely people do it,
	namely copy the existing file into new one, edit the
	new one, and then MOVE (with 'mv') the new one on top
	of the old one.   Editing in-place has had a long history
	of trouble with (especially) ordered files.
