I did get the .rpmnew and did a quick diff between it and my file. I
didn't notice any great difference, because I was in a hurry, so used
the rpmnew, my mistake. Like I said, I need to slow down a little when
changing my files.

Somewhat offtopic, there was a great gui diff tool with SGI IRIX. Does
anybody know of a good GUI based diff for Linux. What I liked about the
IRIX one was I could go through the differences and choose from which
file to keep. Then when I was done it would save out a new file with all
my choices. I tried to get the IRIX version working once, but it didn't
use OpenGL.
