I just grabbed HEAD and rebuilt and ran. Everything worked fine until I tried to run it again (I run it in the foreground and quit with ^C). This time the .conf file looks like it’s been converted to a new format, only all of its nodes are (null). The last time I updated/ran was a few weeks ago, so perhaps I missed something in the forums. Has the .conf been upgraded?

Ahh, nevermind about the .conf upgrade biz. I see what happened: I used the status html pages during the first run and triggered a bug in config_handler() that clobbered the .conf file.
What I did was:
1. access status.html
2. click ‘rescan’
3. strip the ‘?rescan’ from the url and reload the page
This was dumb, since the resulting url was ‘/config-update.html’ and not ‘/status.html’. I wasn’t paying attention. This causes the code to redisplay the status.html page (correct), but also fall through a case where the config file gets rewritten (with (null)) (incorrect). Dumb user mistake on my part. Not even really worth fixing, but I’ll take a stab and send Ron a patch.
These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.13th June 2005 at 8:51 am #3431rpeddeParticipant
Ah, but that’s kind of a nice feature, the fact that a simple mistake renders your config file useless.
Perhaps that’s a bug. :/
