I checked that, I have about 75 devices several of them with ACLs that
are updated weekly. The changes never show up.

This is only recent. I originally thought it was a setting, however I
have not found it. We migrated the system from one box to another and
the problem showed up shortly after. The configs and changes appear to
be commited to CVS.

	In control_rancid it looks like changes where only whitespace
get cut from the diff output. There's probably a newline added or
or something of that nature.
