cvsup kills /etc/ipf.rules !?

Hi Chris,

I didn't get that far (to run mergemaster).

I started cvsup and in the process of syncing the sources
the ssh session to the machine died...

You're right: The file with the rules for ipf is defined in
/etc/rc.conf which didn't got changed in any way...

My assumption was that once the rules got loaded by ipf
I can do whatever I want to the file (/etc/ipf.rules) as
long as I don't reboot the machine.
It seems that the rules got flushed by the updating process
in some way...
