No, Leonid is right, about what I meant.  I see why a diff would have
been better than a verbal patch, sorry.  (I just didn't have an unpacked
2.8.1 tree ready and not much space.)

It would be nice if you could update it yet again.  Otoh there are other
problems with cfg-reloading, this one change doesn't make that much of a
difference in making it generally usable.  (I think I have never tried
what happens if one changes the cookiefile and then reloads, with the
logic as now in the patch.  Cookies may get just written to the new
file instead of the old one from where they were read, which probably
isn't too bad - maybe even what should happen.)
