Kevin Turner also suggested that, and that's actually what my orancid
looks like at the moment: The only line in commandtable *not* commented
out is the one with 'show configuration snapshot all'.

Sure, I'd be glad to try the latest version.

Also, I'm on 2.3.2a7 from FreeBSD-ports. Any chance the OmniSwitch stuff
requires 2.3.2a8 or a9? I tend to think not, since Kevin Turner is using
2.3.1, but just asking.

Thanks again.
