	Yeah, that did suck. I've just fixed it on HEAD by rechecking every 5

	The arbitrary 5 seconds isn't as expensive as it sounds.
bonobo-activation caches the results for queries client side and resets
the cache when it detects something has changed. However, this doesn't
work exactly as you might expect because bonobo-activation-server only
checks for changes (and hence resets the client side cache) when it is
running a query or when a new client starts. So ... in order to force a
reset I found I had to run a dummy query after making a change to the
.server files e.g.

	acitvation-client -s 'iid == "blah"'

	So it still sucks a little bit - but I think in most cases users
wouldn't notice ... I'm sure Michael would welcome bonobo-activation
patches, though :-)

Good Luck,
