Enhancements

Module dnsconf: virtual registry enhancement

The domain definition dialog is now available using the virtual registry. You can now do things like

	/sbin/vregistry --set primary.ns1.some_domain ns1.foo.com

Or you can change major updates using little scripting

	for domain in `vregistry --getvalue primary.domains`
	do
		/sbin/vregistry --set primary.ns1.$domain ns1.foo.com
	done

vdeliver: time-out detection

Under strange/unknown cases, vdeliver may hang while talking to sendmail. There is now a one minute time-out on those cases and the error is logged.

Changes

No more .OLD file in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

Linuxconf produces backup when updating configuration files. This confuses RedHat scripts when parsing the /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts files (IP aliases for one). So Linuxconf is not doing that anymore for those files. A new CONFIG_FILE flag CONFIGF_NOOLD was added to control this behavior.

Bug fixes

Module vregistry: --rundialog

The --rundialog option was not working (doing nothing) for ordinary (non record) registry variables. Fixed!
