Hmmm, thats not the problem, it's still a pure configuration file if it =

respects user changes recorded in /etc/rc.conf!

At the moment i can't imagine where it is usefull only to have the =

DEFAULT config available not respecting user changes! What do I =

miss? In the current state I have to become active in every script/prog =

which needs the REAL configuration of the system.

Best regards

Lars
